The performances he unwittingly practiced as a graffiti rebel in his garage is now on a public stage. As a performance painter, Garibaldi creates images through his body movement and brushes while communicating via music to an amazed audience.

Artists transform an empty canvas into a work of art through their skill, experience, inspiration and senses. David Garibaldi’s life and transition into a world-renowned performance painter is no different.

The culture and color of graffiti art served as an early inspiration for Garibaldi. Born in Los Angles, he later moved as a youth to South Sacramento. It was here that he learned to enjoy the use of his hands and body through art on “larger and somewhat illegal canvases”by painting graffiti as an angst teen. Graffiti artist and high school dropout, he was living day-by-day. The only constants in his life were music and art.

Garibaldi had always combined his passion for music and color, or rhythm and hue, in his artwork. But it wasn’t until viewing performance painter Denny Dent’s portrait of Jimi Hendrix that Garibaldi discovered how his passion for paint and music could be an inspirational experience for more than just himself. He discovered music-driven art, and in some ways it discovered him, revealing a portrait of passion and purpose.

The foundation of Garibaldi’s message is simple: Live your life as a platform, and live with passion and purpose.
