David Iacovazzi-Pau was born in Luxembourg and studied art in Belgium before moving to the United States. While growing up he traveled around Europe, North Africa, and the U.S. This early exposure to different cultures and landscapes prompted Iacovazzi-Pau’s continuing interests in people, diversity, and community. His paintings in series where memory, reality and subjectivity converge are a visual diary and examine space, mood and the diversity of his subjects found in the people he encounters as well as his own family members.
His work have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally such as: Huntsville Museum of Art, AL; Evansville Museum of Art, IN; Carnegie Center for Art & History, New Albany, IN; KMAC Museum, Louisville, KY, Contemporary Arts Center in Las Vegas, NV; and Bowery Gallery, New York, NY. His work is represented in private and public collections such as Indiana University Southeast, William F. Ekstrom Library Collections at the University of Louisville, and Kentucky Center for African American Heritage in Louisville, KY. His paintings have been the subject of a catalog publication published by Old Stone Press on the occasion of his traveling exhibition, "David Iacovazzi-Pau: Paintings & Works on Paper". He currently lives and works in Louisville, Kentucky.
