I know a person can paint photographically, but if you do that, then to me you’re not painting how you see, not painting the spirit of
the moment. It’s the artist’s job to internalize the information the photograph doesn’t record. The camera is a cold, unfeeling
instrument. If you quit short and just copy photographs, you miss the thing that all artists should be pursuing – that sense of how
we feel about what we’re looking at.”

David Filtner obtained a degree at the University of Arizona and continued his formal training at the Art Center College of Design in
Pasadena. One of his Grand Canyon paintings was reproduced in the Arizona Highways magazine and later displayed in the
special exhibition of “A Backward Glace at Arizona Highways Illustrators” at the Pippen Museum of Western Art (April 2000). Though
primarily an oil painter, David Filtner has created several bronze works, one of which was reproduced in the Southwest Art
Magazine calendar. He was commissioned to create a special edition Wildcat bronze for the University of Arizona and was the
featured artist in the University of Arizona Alumni Art Show in 2002. His work has been displayed in Phoenix city government and
corporate buildings nationally. His work is found in private collections nationally and internationally, including those of Burt
Reynolds and Ann Miller.

David Filtner was one of the featured artists in the 2004 American Diabetes Association’s Celebrity Art Auction Gala, artistically
collaborating with Jonathan Elias, News Anchor of ABC-KNXV TV in Phoenix, Arizona. In April of 2005, David Filtner was an honoree
at the Best of Scottsdale Art Show and Gala in Scottsdale, Arizona for his landscapes.

David Flitner has been making his living as an oil painter for over 20 years. His love for the arts
has translated into a very satisfying lifetime career. He thrives on the challenge of bringing
color, intensity and shape together in paintings to convey his vision to others. Whether he is
painting on location in the desert or in his studio, David Flitner is at home with his paintbrush
and considers himself on a lifetime journey of art exploration.

An inclination for figurative Western art – horsemen, Native Americans – jump-started his
career. But the landscape pulled at his senses. “The land evokes a simpler, quieter life. I have
a great appreciation for the vastness of this country, and painting the clouds is very liberating.
Clouds leave more to the imagination. They can be developed more freely.”
Capturing the image on film is just the beginning of David Flitner’s art. “The photograph to me
is a tool, a memory device. The human has two eyes; we focus differently; we don’t see
peripherally. A camera records all the details. People only focus on one thing at a time.
