After graduation from the 'Arts Décoratifs de Paris', David Daoud perfected his technique for seven years with his mentor, the famous sculptor Charles Auffret, who had studied at the studio 'l'atelier des disciples d'Auguste Rodin'.
Hard worker, David Daoud draws his inspiration from nature. Flirting with Impressionism, the painter expresses especially in large format. His favorite themes are exile, travel, distance, nostalgia, absence and eternity.
The artist has exhibited in several galleries, museums and cultural sites in France and Lebanon.
In 2018, Ibrahim Maalouf chose one of his works for the cover of his 'Levantine Symphony' album.
