David Shevlino was born in Jersey City, NJ in 1962. A graduate of the Pennsylvania
Academy of the Fine Arts and the University of Pennsylvania, he
also studied at the Art Students' League in New York. Growing up near NYC, Shevlino was exposed to art as a teenager. He began making trips to art museums at age 15 and developed a love of traditional figurative painting.  His early work was very traditional and classically inspired.  However, after many years of experimenting, Shevlino began exploring a looser paint application which stradles the line between representational painting and abstraction.   This "in between" area is where the painter feels most comfortable and best able to express his artistic voice.  His paintings are characterized by broad brushstrokes, a sensuous application of paint and an obvious feel for tonal harmonies. At the same time, the artist demonstrates a firm sense of control, tightening up the composition through his deft modeling of the human form.
Shevlino has exhibited work nationally in both solo and group exhibits over the past two decades and currently lives in Wilmington, DE.
