David Syre is an American artist whose large-scale acrylic paintings, drawings, sculptures, and art installations are inspired by travel, his subconscious mind, and nature. Syre is self-taught, creates artwork at an accelerated pace and embraces bold lines and brave colors. Archetypal symbols and numbers often appear as images alongside words referencing the moment of creation. He is an artist whose world-view is informed by personal transformation.
Syre´s work is witness to his evolving psyche and internal dialogue. It is spontaneous and manifests as an intuitive offering. The search for spirituality has marked his artistic research and life’s journey. Syre has studied yoga for twenty years, is an active member of the Burning Man community, and is devoted to forging a path towards a universal union and truth. Syre is a prolific artist. His working methods are almost ritualistic. He creates many pieces every day on an endless array of subjects – always exploring new topics and always perfecting his craft.
Syre is currently working on several interdisciplinary projects including several large-scale sculptures and installations including The Peace Trail, a trail he is constructing in Tierra del Fuego at the southernmost extreme of the South American Continent which is meant to offer a spiritual journey through the experience of nature and art.
