David Singer, born in 1941 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, studied briefly at Penn State University before enlisting in the Navy. During his enlistment, Singer dedicated his free time to studying art. Singer’s career as an artist began in San Francisco and he gained recognition designing photomontage posters for Bill Graham and the Fillmore. More recently Singer’s work has become heavily influenced by sacred geometry and mythic symbols. His mandala images utilize intense color and symmetry to create a sense of wholeness out of otherwise disjointed images. His works often incorporate a variety of religious symbols from both eastern and western mythologies. Singer’s tools consist primarily of a large and small pair of scissors, which he uses to cut photographs before piecing them together with adhesive.
