David Corcoran, Yonkers NY Member Since December 2010 Artist Statement David Corcoran began drawing in grade school where he and friends enjoyed illustrating dinosaurs, whales, space ships and military hardware but their favorite was what they called “The Bionic Head” consisting of a head profile filled with gears and circuitry. In high school art classes David’s talents for drawing, painting and sculpture were pointed out and encouraged by some great teachers. After High school David spent a summer hitchhiking around Europe. There he reinforced his passion for art and developed new ones for industrial design and architecture. Returning to Boston David began six years working under stained glass artist Jim Anderson and during that period began studying at The School of the Museum of Fine Arts spending his junior year studying in Paris and graduating from the Museum School in 1992. Since then David has completed numerous paintings, painted several public murals, produced a series of furniture designs, worked as a stone sculptor and has made forays into performance art, acting and music. David currently lives in Yonkers NY. His work has been exhibited in New York, Paris, Boston and Vermont.
