David Solomita is a native of New York City currently living and working in San Francisco. He received his BFA from Rochester Institute of Technology and MS, Educational Leadership in the Arts from Bank Street College of Education.
Solomita has a varied and eclectic background but throughout his life and career has sought a central aesthetic that continually surfaces through his artwork. His artistic endeavors began at a young age as a creator of short films and continued into college at RIT where graduated with a degree in Photography as a Fine Art.
Much of his work has been focused on large-format pieces starting with painting and screenprinting on 11' x 7' canvases. This early work is a distant echo of his current photography which uses paper, light and color to create ethereal sculptural objects. Once photographed, these images are printed and hung in large-scale to be viewed and experienced as an immersive experience.
He has taught at the College Level at Parsons School of Design and many of the Art Schools in and around NYC. Additionally, he was the Director of Continuing Education for Parsons School of Design from 2001-2005. The disciples he has taught include Foundation Art, Animation Design, Lasers in Art, Video Production, Digital Design etc.
