David McCauley is an interdisciplinary artist based in St Petersburg, FL. Since 2012, he has founded multiple 501c3 organizations such as the Rise Up Gallery, Laundromat Art Space, Artillery Residency and The Wynwood Tour Guide App. Each of these entities have been awarded numerous accolades for their programs which encompass art therapy workshops in the community, studio/exhibition space for artists, a live/work artist in residency, and a smartphone based walking tour of the Wynwood Arts District in Miami.
McCauley’s artwork incorporates figurative oil painting, graphic design, typography/language, and fabricated materials. As an artist living with paralysis, McCauley applies various adaptive mark making techniques in the creation of his work while exploring topics of inclusion, universal design, accessibility, and the physical state of the human body. He is represented by Lanoue Gallery in Boston and Woodfield Fine Art in St. Petersburg. His work is held internationally in private collections and has been featured in solo and group exhibitions with such institutions as Art Basel Miami Beach, UBS Planet Art, SCOPE Art Show, Williams-McCall Gallery (Miami Beach), Galerie Lano (Paris), Cheryl Hazan Gallery (NYC), Projective Space (NYC), and The Richmond Art Museum. David has participated in artist residencies at The Art Center South Florida/Oolite Arts (Miami Beach), the Vermont Studio Center (Johnson, VT), Santa Fe Art Institute (Santa Fe, NM), the Laundromat Art Space (Miami), Void Projects (Miami), and YO Space (Miami). He is also a two time recipient of the Creative Access Fellowship Award.
