Dave Yoas

Dave grew up in suburban Northern California, where as a teen he was influenced by hot rod culture and Mad Magazine. He began making t-shirt designs for kids in the neighborhood inspired by Big Daddy Ed Roth and illustrator Don Martin. After graduating from U.C. Santa Cruz, he travelled through Europe and the Far East, savoring the colors, architecture, and patterns of other cultures. Living in the Netherlands with a family of artists further educated and inspired him. He returned to California and found his way back to art, via ceramic sculpture to his current medium and passion of tin.

 

From his artist statement:

'I started working with tin over 20 years ago. During a trip to New Mexico I saw various examples of tin art from the 1840’s to the present day. I discovered wonderful hand-stamped tin artworks housing lights or saints. During that same trip I discovered artists, who were using up-cycled tin containers in their work. I decided to try to combine the hand-stamped tin with the up-cycled tin art work that I was seeing. I am largely self taught, experimenting and learning on the fly.'
