David Jon Kassan (born 1977 in Little Rock, Arkansas) is a contemporary American painter best known for his life-size representational paintings, which combine figurative subjects with abstract backgrounds or “tromp l’oeil texture studies,” Of this dual representation strategy Kassan notes, “my effort to constantly learn to document reality with a naturalistic, representational painting technique allows for pieces to be inherent contradictions; paintings that are both real and abstract.”
Kassan is a much sought after drawing and painting instructor because of his steadfast commitment to the age old discipline of working from life and creating compelling expressions of the human condition. He has given painting/drawing seminars and lectures at various institutions, and universities around the world. In 2013, he founded the Kassan Foundation in hopes of giving grants directly to underprivileged talent in both the visual and musical arts.
Kassan works can be seen in many public and private collections worldwide. He is represented by Gallery Henoch (Chelsea), New York, NY and The Maxwell Alexander Gallery in Culver City, CA. Kassan lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

One of Guy Aitchison's hardest-hitting video tutorials is simply
titled Technique. It’s a four disk set that shows you closeup footage
of the machine in action as Guy works through five different projects,
presented in a concentrated format. The first two disks are a special
edition cut of his 'Guy’s Bag Of Tricks' webinar, showing a project from
start to finish as he answers a variety of questions from the audience
about design preparation, palette and the equipment and methods he's
using. The other two disks, Tightening 1 and 2, go into detail about
finishing techniques, spotlighting four projects up close, describing
every move in detail as Guy shows the line building, detailing,
smoothing and other development on a variety of effects including
floral, organic, mechanical, metallic and carved wood, with each piece
showed healed so you can see the kind of results that you can
realistically expect from working with these methods.
We're now offering this tutorial at a price of $125 for the entire
set. Or, even better, you can get it FREE with a subscription to
Reinventing The Tattoo, Guy's epic online educational package. If you
are already a Reinventing subscriber, simply log on and you'll find it
waiting for you at the end of Page 354.
