Feb 20, 2023

David Drebin joins #MikedUp for a great discussion about creativity, art, and inspiration!

David is a graduate of Parsons School of Design; he began his career in commercial photography and then quickly made a name for himself advancing into the world of contemporary fine art. Over the years, his signature film style has evolved into other art forms, including neon light installations and the revolutionary "photo sculpture." David’s work has been shown in multiple exhibitions over the last decade and has been featured in many of the most prestigious art fairs and galleries.

His unique vision, distinctive depth and often passion or tension-filled images provide an infinite surface for the imagination making his work highly desirable as art to adorn and complete the most beautiful spaces.

Throughout his career, Drebin has worked with individuals, A-list celebrities and global powerhouse brands such as Davidoff, Mercedes, American Express, Adidas, The May Fair Hotel, MTV, Nike, Breil, Sony and many more. He’s contributed to top publications such as Vanity Fair, New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, GQ, Condé Nast Traveler, National Geographic and ELLE.

In this chat, David lays out his all-in approach towards art and his never ending obsession with creating unique and powerful images. David breaks down why listening to your own voice and discovering why you were put on this earth is the first key towards turning your passions into a career path. By investigating the fusion of words and images, David also shares how introspective and provocative titles help people reflect more deeply on their artistic  experiences and how his past struggles inform his art and purpose.

This episode is an inside look at the business of art shot through the lens of a world-class photographer, multidisciplinary artist, and “artrapranure.”
