David Sandlin

Born in Ireland and raised amidst Protestant-Catholic strife in Belfast, David Sandlin has spent his career discussing America, for all her hypocrisy and charm. His family moved to the United States in 1972 and settled in Birmingham, Alabama, affording David the quintessential Southern American experience. Sandlin earned his BFA from the University of Alabama in 1979; he has lived and worked in New York for more than 25 years where his work has evolved from street art to bumper stickers to paintings and installations.
