David is the future of painting. I first saw his work in Cologne at his studio. It blew my mind. There is great depth and vision to his work. I feel his soul. We went out afterwards for a drink. He is a true maniac. He tried to stick his tongue in my mouth. I told him we should stay friends. In truth his paintings are a turn on. Let’s see what happens. The future is bright for Ostrowski.
