Shamanism: Images of a Mythic Journey new work by David Mejia
“I have always been intrigued by the path of the Shaman who lives between the worlds of the known and unknown. The power of myth and magic throughout the ages and into this modern world.”
David Mejia is a local San Jose artist who has appeared at art events through out the Bay Area and Northern California drawing quick portraits of patrons at both public and private events for the past 6 years. Drawing since the age of 6, Mejia’s styles vary between realistic, abstract, and cartoon. He works with mixed media, including pencil, watercolor, acrylic, and ink.
“I like to live IN my art. I like to take the real world with all its random stressful complexities and cruelties, and transform it into this simpler colorful brilliant world of my imagination.” ~David Mejia
