Biography

David Peikon (born 1958) dreamed of a life as a painter since his early teens but was urged to seek a more secure career path. After college he spent 15 years in the commercial printing industry, culminating his career as a vice-president of sales. In 1996, at the age of 38, he left the business world to pursue his passion. His landscapes have been described as scenes of serene isolation, always with a reverence for the beauty of nature, whether the subject is the native shores of Long Island or the hills of Tuscany. Now in his second decade as a painter, his work hangs in private and corporate collections around the world. In addition to 18 solo shows thus far, he has been featured in numerous publications including American Artist Magazine and The NY Times Also known for his striking portraits, the artist is honored to include among his clients, William F. Buckley Jr., Dr. George Church, Salvatore Ferragamo, Philanthropist David H. Koch, The Presidents of Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Mrs. Mary Phipps, Dr. David Steinberg, President of Long Island University and Nobel Laureates Drs. Elizabeth Blackburn, Thomas Cech, Carol Greider, and James D. Watson.
