David Koch is an artist with a long history creating fine art for private and public collections. His painting “The Golden Road” commemorating the 150 year anniversary of the transcontinental railroad was recently purchased and added to the State of Utah Alice Merrill Horne Collection which comprises Utah's best visual artists of the past 120 years.
Mr. Koch’s work can also be found in the collections of former Vice President of the United States, Dick Cheney, former Utah Governor Mike Leavitt, and Utah Senator Mike Lee. Two murals depicting Utah history were commissioned by the Utah State Capitol Restoration Board and are found in the House of Representative Chambers of the Utah State Capitol Building. Mr. Koch has been awarded commissions for other large-scale, religious murals located in Canada, the United States and Europe.
Born in Logan, Utah USA in 1963, David was drawn to all things creative from a young age. However, it wasn’t until later in life that he realized that his passion could also be his profession. He graduated in 1990 from Utah State University with a degree in Art. He refined his craft while working as a graphic designer and illustrator for the next nine years before devoting his full-time efforts to fine art.
“I enjoy painting a variety of subjects including figures, still lifes, and landscapes. Especially when I can combine these subjects into historical and religious narratives. I believe that the definition of good art is art that inspires, motivates, uplifts, and teaches. It is a privilege and a challenge for me to create art that rises to these purposes. My goal when creating a work of art is to make a painting say more than just the objects being painted.” David accomplishes this using the elements of Drawing, Design, Value and Abstraction.
David lives in Richmond, Utah with his family and works from his studio and art gallery located in Logan, Utah.
