David Wheatley (also known as Daza) was born in and lived the first part of his life in Toronto, Canada. While travelling, his work was shown in Europe, the Middle East and later on around the United States. Eventually, he became involved in decorative home and commercial painting, as a muralist and faux painter. In 1998 he was commissioned to reproduce in it’s original scale and detail, Monet’s painting “Sunset”, which is a permanent installation in Paris at the Musee de L’Orangerie. After moving to South Florida, where he is presently based, he also became involved in set painting for the Hollywood Boulevard Theater. Throughout the years, an absorbing interest in mythology of any kind, philosophy, theology, metaphysics and the psychology of these and other kindred subjects have consistently surfaced in his creative work.
