More about David Russell TalbottDavid Russell Talbott comes from a California family filled with painters, musicians, and one B-Movie scream queen. He spent over ten years in the indie rock scene before dropping his guitar in favor of a paintbrush.
His artwork was first popular in the West Coast music scene, completing over one hundred flyers for various music venues in Southern California. David then created his art style called "PULPCORE", influenced by the vintage pulp of the Forties and Fifties. His images are filled with a cast of characters you'd find in classic crime fiction and film noir.
Since his first show in the late nineties, he has exhibited across the US and has been published internationally. His artwork has been seen in JUXTAPOZ, Sleek Magazine (Berlin), & San Diego CITYBEAT. His “HOLLYWOOD EATS ITS OWN” art series is now being turned into a fully illustrated book.
David will be available for interviews in Seattle starting April 28th. The "Hollywood Pulpcore" art show will run thru June 30, 2008.
