Born in Aurora on January 30, 1943, David Berkowitz Chicago enrolled at the Art Institute of Chicago, but never got his degree. The naïve artist, discovered his passion for painting while in hospital, after suffering a serious spine injury during a football match. When he was in the hospital, he started painting portraits of patients. David Berkowitz Chicago started exploring and doing small volumes with drawings that show some pain and treatment methods. Drawing and focusing on understanding pain somehow helped him relax. Then he began to go deeper into the process. Some of the topics that David Berkowitz Chicago addressed early in his career are closely connected with understanding and analyzing pain. That is, in his opinion, a dangerous area because it can easily slip into poignant.
Soon after that, David Berkowitz Chicago returned home, where he joined a local art group. It wasn’t long enough until people started asking him to buy his paintings. Then he realized that he can do painting professionally, not just as a hobby. So, he started creating artwork and a local art dealer helped him find buyers. Once things took off, he decided to open his own studio, and that is how David Berkowitz Chicago Atelier came to existence.
As a naive naïve art painter and entrepreneur, Berkowitz nurtures a quite unique style. His paintings have been described as alive and different for each "viewer". They change, depending on the viewer's readiness to see, experience and receive. The paintings are a higher frequency that wants to flow through us. How it will take us and enrich us depends on our expectations. One of the main reasons why David choose naïve art is because he sees it as an escape from chaos to a fairy tale. Naive art is pure, childish and original.
Now, most of David Berkowitz Chicago’s artworks are somehow connected with the images seen in his early childhood. The magical regions of childhood, the fairytale horses are just some of the things that make this artist unique. Through the creative process, he expresses his ideas on canvas, transmitting his own emotions and sensations. His context is formed by a balance of peace and clarity, giving his works a sense of authenticity and genuineness. For him, the most sincere form of expression is the search and not the improvement; it is the search that leads the artist to deepen his passion.
Over the years, naive painter, David Berkowitz has had over 20 independent exhibitions in the country and abroad, and about 30 joint exhibitions all over the USA. His paintings are included in many private collections around the world and some are displayed at the American National Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.
