As a child I loved fantasy art. Dragons, faeries and other mythical creatures populated my imagination. My paintings, prints and posters have become a way for me to explore my inner fantasy world. When I started doing tattoos and tattoo designs, these fantasy characters came alive on people's skin. It's been an amazing journey. My art has taken me to places that have blown my mind and opened my heart.
I don’t know if demons and devils really exist in the world, but as metaphor and archetype, the certainly do. To consciously come into contact with my dark and light aspects has been both difficult and liberating. And while I’m grateful everyday for the gift of being, sometimes it just hurts to be alive. Art is an outlet for my struggle with the (my) human condition. Even within my most frightening images you’ll see traces of grace. In almost every painting and drawing you’ll find a flower, a pearl of wisdom or a ray of light. The symbolism of hope emerges in the darkest places. My images are not a glorification of darkness. Rather, they are a humble bow to the full spectrum of our miraculous humanity. I'm thrilled to share it with you. Enjoy! – David Bollt

Many of these timeless images touch a place in us all as they rise from the mists of our own preconscious memories." – Heavy Metal Magazine
"Your drawings transported me to a futuristic world where I saw sadness, terror, joy and trancendence. I saw sadness in the love between a couple where the guy seemed headed out to battle, felt compassion towards what looks like a masked face, saw hope in sunshine and fleeting peace in mountains, and everything with an element of amazement. My favorite was the one with the eyes staring right back at me. Whoa! It felt like I was face to face with a predator. That was quite a ride. You definitely did “inspire, frighten and shock me into a state of awe and wonder”. The preface and even the message in the mail felt heartfelt and personal - should have expected nothing less from you." – Shobhit Sharma
"I fell in love with your artwork when I first discovered it about 15 years ago. I was working in a tattoo shop and came across some of your flash. We sold it like hotcakes because it was so awesome. I currently have 3 of your designs tattooed on me (that's almost half of my work). I was a pool player then as well. Put her on my forearm so when I was stretched across the table, she'd shine in all her grace, beauty and fierceness. Thank you for keeping your work out there and allowing us to be a part." – Casey Hearn
