David Boyd, Jr. (b. 1973)
Boyd is a nationally award winning artist whose work can be found in private collections across the globe. He is an avid outdoor painter and describes himself as a southern impressionist painter. Boyd attended the Savannah College of Art and Design, receiving a degree in illustration. He is an active member of several groups including the Plein Air Painters of the Southeast (in which he currently serves as president), National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society, Oil Painters of America (signature member), American Impressionist Society, and the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association. He is a founding member of the Society of Seven, a regional band of representational painters.
In 2016, Boyd cofounded The Studio School at Three Hearts Farm outside of Newnan, GA, where he teaches painting and hosts award winning painters for workshops throughout the year. Boyd also teaches workshops across the southeast. In the fall of 2017 he opened David Boyd Gallery & Studio in historic downtown Newnan, GA. Boyd took his teaching online in 2020 starting "The Basement Sessions," a live-streamed glimpse into his process. Boyd is also a proud husband and father.
His work is available through his gallery, David Boyd Gallery & Studio in Newnan, GA, on his website at www.davidboydjr.com, or though Spalding Nix Fine Art in Atlanta, Hagan Fine Art in Charleston, American Contemporary Art online, and Beverly McNeill Gallery in Birmingham, AL.
