David Rustin is the artist known as Poppy.
He is a life long resident of the capital district. David’s style of art is a combination of paper and acrylic, joint compound and acrylic or found objects.
He uses color to make a bold statement in some pieces and others to show movement.
In addition to the Romaine Brooks, Poppy has show was in Boiceville, NY at the Boiceville Flower shop and Gallery, as well as in Troy and Schenectady,NY at local venues.
He feels that the most important part of his art is that it makes you feel something. If you like it, love it, hate it. It does its job as long as you walk away with an emotion.
Poppy was featured in It’s Men magazine’s February 27, 2014 edition.
