David Ligare


Growing up in Southern California, David Ligare (born 1945) developed a vision of light informed by his proximity to the Pacific Ocean. After attending the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, he moved north, living for several years in Big Sur and Santa Barbara. He began to fully embrace Classicism in the late 1970s and, at the same time, relocated permanently to Monterey County, California, where he continues his quest to create evocatively beautiful, classically inspired paintings that transcend time and place.
