Artist Talk: David Peikon discusses The Unvarnished Truth at East End Arts

November 9, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


The Unvarnished Truth

Join Artist DAVID PEIKON as he shares his story and addresses the questions of what it has been like for him to be a full time working artist; the joys, the heartbreaks and everything in between. “As a mostly self-taught painter, I have spent more than 40,000 hours at the easel over 21 years, produced over 1,000 paintings, with approximately 700 now in private and corporate collections worldwide. There have been numerous challenges, emotionally, physically, and financially as I have tried to carve out a place for myself. I will discuss how I planned for this career before going at it full time, what I did right, what I did wrong, and how I adapted the plan to the realities I faced on an ongoing basis.”
