Dave Clay is a figure artist, software engineer, interactive sculptor using Arduino and LEDs, and musician. He has exhibited at the Seattle Erotic Art Festival as well as an Honorarium Grant Recipient for Burning Man.

As a figurative and landscape painter working primarily in oils, I aim to make emotional connections through atmospheric and distorted subjects. I prefer my work to have recognizable subjects over pure abstraction to encourage emotional connections in the viewer’s mind. The artwork uses industrial and abstract elements encouraging the viewer to react with their own emotional memories and experiences.
