David Hunt was born in Long Beach, California; lived in the Philippine Islands and the New England Coast before settling in Cincinnati, Ohio. He studied product design at the University of Cincinnati and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Design.
During his studies, his painting style was influenced by artists Robert Fabe, Phil Foster and Reginald Grooms. David's professional career included extensive work as product development consultant and as an Adjunct Instructor at the Design, Art and Architecture College at the University of Cincinnati.
There is a dream-like touch to his landscapes. His transitions in tone and color between trees, sky, water or fields are at times subtle; at other times very severe in contrast and value.
