649 neighbors want CityZens on Muni in San Francisco.

Proposal
This project has a personal significance to me as an artist because I learned so much about drawing by drawing people riding the bus. I’ve drawn people on buses for decades, from New York to San Francisco. San Francisco is so alive - a continuous source of inspiration. On public transit, there is no separation of wealth or race or profession. Everyone just going somewhere, together. Each lost in their own daydreams or memories or their newspapers or phones, they tell a story all their own - their poems unfold before us. Both poetry and visual art can resonate with viewers and, when put together, they can become a synergistic experience. For this project, I will create drawings from life that capture a moment in our city; scenes that show the people the beauty I see in them and in the city around me.

Artist Biography
David Carroll is an artist, martial artist, teacher, and gardener currently living and working in San Francisco. Originally from New York, he holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Art from SUNY Purchase and a Master of Art Education from Goddard College. From the deliberate mark making in paintings, to the branches used to articulate hollow anatomical sculptures, his work is constantly revealing the expressive, chaotic quality inherent in the mediums themselves. His art conveys an honest view of subject matter seen in facial expressions and body language. The viewer feels the mood of a moment, resonating an awareness of an ever-present emotional reality in small things and everyday events. Some of his favorite mediums are watercolors, oil paints, and sticks. More of my work can by found at www.instagram.com/david_carroll_art
