b. 1943, works and lives in New York

The renowned architect Marcel Breuer‘s work also has frequently been the subject of David Diao's art. The geometrical shape in the painting First and Last Whitney Biennial in the Breuer Building (2015) symbolises the Whitney Museum of American Art, whose trapezoidal window was so impressive that it became the unofficial logo of the museum. The numbers beside the trapezoid indicate that the first and last Whitney Biennial in the Breuer Building, both of which included Diao‘s artworks, took place in 1973 and 2014 respectively. It clearly incorporates the contributions of the artist‘s predecessors and his own painting history.
