Rhythm, Color, Culture, Energy; These Four words describe the experience viewing the creations of world renowned Artist David Garibaldi.
Born in Los Angeles in 1982, Garibaldi began creating at a young age. After relocating and growing up in Sacramento, it was not until high school, after walking away from a life of graffiti in the streets, that he turned his influences of hip hop culture into a positive direction. Unfortunately by then, it was too late to make up lost time in school, and he could not graduate. A season of hard times to come could not shake the drive of this young artist from pursuing his dreams.
In 2003, David Garibaldi began to turn his illustrations on paper into paintings on canvas. Garibaldi would paint live at urban jazz sessions, nightclubs, and hip hop events for direct influence by the music, and he began to create a buzz about his work along the way. In addition to David Garibaldi’s urban jazz influenced paintings, he naturally created a live performance art show called Rhythm and Hue.
Rhythm and Hue is a performance art show where artist David Garibaldi creates 6 foot portraits of pop icons in minutes to music. Garibaldi’s unique show is extremely versatile and has been featured with celebrities like Carlos Santana; utilized by Fortune 500 companies like AT&T, raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for various charities, and used as a platform to motivate students and employees of various organizations.
STUDIO & STAGE:
Much like a musician, David Garibaldi will continue to create his paintings in the studio, and hit the road to captivate audiences around the world. Whether Garibaldi is in the studio, or on stage, he is Rhythm, Color, Culture, Energy.
Garibaldi’s Rhythm and Hue is much more than a performance art, and paint flailing presentation;
it is an inspirational experience as well. Garibaldi tells the story of how he was living the life of a graffiti rebel until a high school teacher challenged him to make his art more purposeful. He shares his personal struggles and triumphs that helped to shape him into a world-renowned painter and performer in the studio and on the stage.
The foundation of Garibaldi’s message is simple: Live your life as a platform, and live with passion and purpose.
