David P. Flores is an American artist, muralist and product designer.
David Flores was born in Tulare, California. He graduated High School from Tulare Union High School in Tulare California, attended college in Santa Barbara and left with a degree in graphic design. After graduation Flores began his career as a commercial artist in the Skateboarding industry.
Flores says his art was “an instant hit with the global urban art community especially in Japan”, where he said his style was well respected and received. A collaborative toy and housewares project was created called “DFWORKS BEARBRICK” and “Fabrick” with Medicom Toy, in the Aoyama District of Tokyo.
Flores is best known for his self-proclaimed “Stained Glass” and mosaic or segmented style. The impact of Flores’ graphic style comes in its ability to allow the viewer to reinterpret a popular image they already have associations with. Flores’ murals, acrylic paintings and sculptures have many iconic images, including images of late artists such as Andy Warhol, Salvador Dalí, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Robert Crumb.
Flores has also participated in other commercial collaborations with photographer Phil Stern, Flip Skateboards, Medicom Toy Co., Shepard Fairey, Mural Collaboration, Akomplice Clothing, Disney for Block28, Stussy, Oakley Sunglasses (with a limited release in Japan), snowboard projects with M3, a rendition of Speedy Gonzales with Warner Brothers, “DFWORKS BEARBRICK” and “Fabrick” with Medicom Toy, Pro-series shoe with DC*SHOES, toys with XLARGE, Kidrobot, Delabarracuda LA, House of Pain, Remix Revista of Argentina, Chouette Luxury of Hong Kong and Simpsons limited edition sneakers with Vans (where he was illustrated as a Simpsons character himself by Matt Groening.
