About David Hoque
David Hoque is an American artist born in Monterey, California. He is primarily self taught with some formal art training in watercolor and colored pencil art pieces. He is a professional member of the International Guild of Realism and the Colored Pencil Society of America and will be soon be inducted as a signature member of this organization. David routinely has art pieces juried into both of their prestigious annual international exhibitions . He has also been published in Artist Portfolio Magazine, regularly in Ann Kullberg's "Color" Magazine and her annual "CP Treasures Vol. III and IV", as well as "Colored Pencil Magazine". David was also a finalist in the 2018 "Richeson 75 Still Life and Floral International Exhibition" and two additional pieces received meritorious recognition.
David is well traveled and has lived all over the world. This experience has had a positive impact on his vision as an artist. His primary subjects are still life and some human and animal portraiture. He has great interest in realism and creating pieces with great contrasts between light and dark color and tones. He enjoys conveying its balance and how these visionary qualities complement each other. He draws and paints with a heavy hand but with rich, deep color pallets. His subjects are balanced and precise and he favors reflection, fire and objects that are simple but interesting. "Its important for me to create pieces from the world around us that the observer can draw dramatic perspective and positive emotion from and walk away inspired by the experience."
David is a professional fine artist and currently lives in Prince George, Virginia with his family and is a Magistrate for the Commonwealth.
