Bio

David Čáp

Painter, tattoo artist and visual artist born in 1992 in Teplice. Currently lives and works in Prague and Kralupy nad Vltavou.

David has a constant creative urge, always trying to discover new techniques and invent unconventional methods. His journey began with tattooing, a profession he is still pursuing. He rejects conventional boxes, he is forging his own aesthetic path.

Although tattooing remains a passion, David feels the weight of client expectations and the responsibility that comes with it. Therefore, he seeks artistic liberation in painting, where he experiments with abstract forms and unconventional processes.

Recently he has been creating unique papier-mâché furniture that mixes functionality with expressive, sometimes even ridiculous or caricatured shapes. His aim is to push the boundaries of visual appeal without sacrificing utility, ensuring that each piece is both exceptional and functional.
