David Lynch

David Lynch (b. 1946) 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. Born in Missoula, Montana, Lynch studied painting at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA). 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 also reveal a vital source of inspiration for his instantly recognizable filmmaking aesthetic. Lynch’s artworks are characterized by their absence of color; he believes black is a liberating factor and uses it to make his works more dreamlike. Lynch has been the subject of numerous exhibitions around the world, most recently Squeaky Flies in the Mud at Sperone Westwater in New York and HOME in Manchester, England in 2019. Retrospectives of his work were held at Bonnefantenmuseum, Maastricht, Netherlands in 2018-19, the Centre of Contemporary Art, Torun, Poland in 2017-18, and the Queensland Art Gallery in Brisbane, Australia in 2015. 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 the book Dark Splendor.
