Meet the MFA candidates- David DeRosa


David DeRosa is in his 2nd year at CCAD MFA.  He was born on Long Island, but spent most of his childhood in San Francisco.  David received his undergraduate degree from Academy of Art University in San Francisco.  David DeRosa works mostly with acrylics, mixing his own colors from pigments.  His past projects were all attempts at getting paint off the canvas.  His first project dealt with the family dynamic through acrylic, and his second project deals with perceptual ambiguity.  This piece was arranged in three-dimensional space in a way that only made the entire painting visible if the viewer was in one specific spot.

His thesis project is more sculptural. He is dealing with the abandonment of the figure and one’s perception of the world around them.


David’s future plans include pushing his work further into the conceptual realm.
