Then in 1989, his family decided to move to the United States. As he grew older, he became mesmerized and intrigued in the arts. One can argue that his natural ability is passed down from his long lineage of relatives from distant and immediate who each carry the same gift or from his dedication to his craft. Since both his parents are great artists, they encouraged Davidís youth to be colorful and exposed him at a tender age to become involved in creative pursuits. Memories as young as at the age of five years old, David recalls drawingóbut not that of an ordinary child, rather that of a patient determined artiste. He uses his early childhood memories to cast new perception onto his artwork. Slowly he began to expand his talent, but his main focus was on graphic design.
