David Lindberg was born in 1964 in Des Moines, Iowa (USA). After studying architecture, he worked in both art and design in parallel. A citizen of the world, he has lived in various places, following opportunities in his work; he lived in the Netherlands for many years, and then in Milan, before returning to the USA to live and work in New York.

Lindberg has been studying materials and their components for many years, in the tradition of American minimalism, where the material, in his case epoxy resin, determines the form. The artist has worked with epoxy resin ever since he was first struck by its potential at the age of eleven. He learned to know its aggregating, containing, and expressive qualities as a young man and realised that it could produce practically any kind of form, amorphous creature or glassy presence.

The materials used, left free to take on the most natural course possible, describe the artist’s thoughts and emotions.

The artist uses materials commonly employed in industry to create works with a bold expressive impact that become glossy polychrome surfaces. 

His colours, crystallised in glossy surfaces or in just a few drops, have the transparency of water or the sky, while forms become something else, in a continuous transformation between painting and sculpture. In his works we may perceive resin’s ability to give life to infinite colourful motifs, as the inorganic simulates the fluid organic qualities of nature, allowing us to dive into the depths of the sea or observe vegetable presences of various kinds.

His art is the product of an authentic need to express an inner world full of often undecipherable sensations: an indispensable way of representing his way of being through a process of artistic genesis. 

Lindberg has exhibited in world-famous galleries such as Tanya Rumpff Gallery (Haarlem, the Netherlands), Studio La Città (Verona), Baukunst Gallery (Cologne), and Mimmo Scognamiglio (Milan), and his work has been presented at important international contemporary art shows such as Art Basel, Art Brussels, Art Chicago, Art Cologne and FIAC Paris. Recent installations include one set up at Università Bocconi in Milan in 2014. In 2015 he exhibited at Galerie Nouvelles Images in the Netherlands and Camp Design Gallery in Milan. Between 2016 and 2019 he exhibited a number of his projects in MARCOROSSI artecontemporanea galleries.
