David Catrow, who lives in Ohio, is still basically a kid; not actually to the point that he throws his balled-up dirty socks under the coffee table or walks around all day with Gerber’s strained peas on his face. But he is still very much the wide eyed and inspired observer who is forever searching for a way to capture the world and put it in a jar for a closer look.
Through David’s drawings and conversation, his audience gets a glimpse into the process through which his art comes alive and speaks. David also provides insights on his artistic childhood — a time when artists were seen the same way a rabbit with wings might be: as a curiosity. David believes that all of us can nurture back our natural human ability to communicate visually. Just look at the 40,000-year-old cave paintings kids discovered in France. But these are especially remarkable when you consider that the Louvre wouldn’t open an art school for another 39,000 years.
