David Lynch

David Lynch (b. 1946, Missoula, Montana) is an artist, musician, and filmmaker who wrote and directed the critically acclaimed films Eraserhead, Elephant Man, Blue Velvet, Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive, and the television series Twin Peaks. Although often described as surrealist, his visual style is highly unique and has been branded as his own Lynchian style. Lynch studied painting at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. He moved to Los Angeles in 1970 to study filmmaking at the AFI Center for Advanced Film Studies. Lynch has received myriad accolades throughout his decades-long filmmaking career, including three Academy Award nominations, a Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, a Golden Lion award for lifetime achievement at the Venice Film Festival, and two César Awards for Best Foreign Film. Most recently, he was awarded an honorary Oscar in 2019. A lifelong visual artist, Lynch’s paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures, and prints provide a deeper understanding of his vision and reveal a vital source of inspiration for his instantly recognizable filmmaking aesthetic. An absence of color characterizes Lynch’s artworks; he believes black is a liberating factor and uses it to make his works more dreamlike. Lynch has been the subject of numerous exhibitions worldwide, most recently “Squeaky Flies in the Mud” at Sperone Westwater in New York and “My Head is Disconnected” at HOME in Manchester, England (both in 2019). Retrospectives of his work were held at Bonnefantenmuseum in Maastricht, Netherlands (2018-19), Centre of Contemporary Art in Torun, Poland (2017-18), and Queensland Art Gallery in Brisbane, Australia (2015). Additional major surveys include exhibitions at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2014-15 and the Fondation Cartier in Paris in 2007. In 2011, an extensive collection of his drawings, paintings, and photographs was published in Dark Splendor. David Lynch lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
