|David Grieco was born in
New York. At an early age, he became aware of his passion for art
that is inherent in the nature of being. While he has been an artist
most of his life, David has never pursued formal training as a sculptor.
Despite the unconventional path he has chosen, he received significant
industry recognition and most importantly believes he has found his
true calling for expression. His work has always reflected his desire
and ability to emulate human emotions in sculpted form. The Getty
Museum claims "…it may be his lack of training that allows
him to create his own rules and break new barriers in (sculpture)."
At the age of eleven, he received recognition for his ability at the
1983 New York State Art Exhibition.
David fully realized his natural creative ability for sculpture while
assisting a well-known artist on a Los Angeles monument in 1994.
|Soon afterwards, he focused
on his passion for emotional expression and evolved his attraction
to form and lines. His life's ambition is to sculpt the various emotions
of the human spirit, capturing in bronze the innermost feelings of
humanity. Both national and international collectors have praised
his work as representative of our time. "David Grieco's work
is deeply rooted in the soul of spirit in the storm of unconsciousness."
David's work consists of six phases: the emotions of man, the emotions
of woman, the emotional unity of man and woman, the natural elements
of life, the eternal, and the portraits. Currently, he is receiving
much praise for his ten foot piece "Man Embracing Fear,"
a product of Phase One.
