Born in New Orleans and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Dave Correia has been drawing his entire life. Fascinated by comic books, horror films, and video games as a child, the subjects of Dave’s earliest artistic endeavors were often strange, demonic creatures. Disturbing, yet grotesquely appealing, these characters and their fictional worlds fueled his imagination and had a strong, significant influence on Dave’s creative style today.

Opening this Saturday, May 31st at Bash Contemporary in San Francisco, California is the three person show “Dark Matters” which will feature brand new work by artists Robert Bowen, Caitlin Hackett and Dave Correia. All three artists share a cold, disconnected aesthetic that results in horrific creatures and nightmare-scapes. Though haunting, these works are beautiful and stunning.
Check out more works from each of the artists and a glimpse into their studios where they work below:
