Here For You to See
by David King
All of David King’s collages are constructed in the traditional, cut-and-paste method and have an obsessive attention to detail. This image is one of a series of collages that re-make the 1980s beefcake icon Scott Madsen into the Hindu god Shiva, “A god with so many powers, he can fulfill your every need.” King’s work has been shown in Europe and across the U.S., including venues such as Artist’s Space in New York, The Soap Factory in Minneapolis, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and The Lab in San Francisco. He was recently an artist-in-residence at the San Francisco Dump, and he was also the recipient of an artist’s grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation. He is currently represented by Hang Art in San Francisco, where he lives. Visit his website at davidkingcollage.com to see more of his collages.
