DAILY ARCHIVE: David Iacovazzi-Pau

Fri 07 Nov

Painter David Iacovazzi-Pau specializes in portraits.

His paintings reveal various aspects of the sitter through an analytical perspective reminiscent of the later work of photographer Richard Avedon or the oversize paintings of Chuck Close, yet Iacovazzi-Pau injects enough warmth to avoid the relentlessness of their work in favor of something more compassionate. His aim is to portray idiosyncrasies and evoke the mood of the subject in order for the portrait to have an accurate likeness and affect.

Born in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and educated in Belgium, Iacovazzi-Pau immigrated to the United States in 1997. His paintings have appeared in a number of group and solo exhibitions in America and abroad, including “Worldwide Diversity through Portraiture” in Mainz, Germany. Iacovazzi-Pau won first place in the 2014 “About Face: Juried Portrait Exhibition” at the Bower-Suhrheinrich Visual Art Center in Evansville, Indiana. He was a finalist in the 25th Annual Juried Show at the Contemporary Arts Center in Las Vegas earlier this year. The artist is also representing Kentucky in a national showcase of figurative art sponsored by Figure50.com. In 2015, Iacovarzzi-Pau will have a traveling exhibition of his work.
