David Jon Kassan is a contemporary American painter. Born in 1977 in Little Rock, Arkansas. Best known for his life-size realist portraits.
“My work is a way of meditation, a way of slowing down time though the careful observation of overlooked slices of my environment. It is the subtlety of emotion in my acquaintances that inhabit the aforementioned environment which intrigues me. My paintings strive for reality, a chance to mimic life in both scale and complexity. ” – David Jon Kassan
