Artists transform an empty canvas into a work of art through their skill, experience, inspiration and senses. David Garibaldi’s life and transition into a world-renowned performance painter is no different.

The culture and color of graffiti art served as an early inspiration for Garibaldi. Born in Los Angles, he later moved as a youth to South Sacramento. It was here that he learned to enjoy the use of his hands and body through art on "larger and somewhat illegal canvases” by painting graffiti as an angst teen. Graffiti artist and high school dropout, he was living day-by-day. The only constants in his life were music and art.

Garibaldi had always combined his passion for music and color, or rhythm and hue, in his artwork. But it wasn’t until viewing performance painter Denny Dent’s portrait of Jimi Hendrix that Garibaldi discovered how his passion for paint and music could be an inspirational experience for more than just himself. He discovered music-driven art, and in some ways it discovered him, revealing a portrait of passion and purpose.

Garibaldi’s synergy of music and art is what makes him unique as a painter and a performer. The performances he unwittingly practiced as a graffiti rebel in his garage is now on a public stage. As a performance painter, Garibaldi creates images through his body movement and brushes while communicating via music to an amazed audience.

The foundation of Garibaldi’s message is simple: Live your life as a platform, and live with passion and purpose. Garibaldi has also be seen featured on various networks like MTV, NBC, UPN, PBS, in addition to worldwide publications like Art World News, Art Business News, and Yahoo! News. David, adds this about his platform, “We all need inspiration sometimes, and no matter what age group attends
my shows, they all leave the same….inspired!”
