From the 2014 CSA PGH season.


DAVID MONTANO created a series of paintings on discarded book covers, inspired by sign painting and the lyrics of Leonard Cohen for the 2014 Half Share. Each painting in the edition is different.


Montano was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and educated at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His work has been exhibited at the Mattress Factory (2007), Braddock, PA's Unsmoke Artspace (2008), the Carnegie Museum of Art (2009, 2013), the Governor's Island Art Fair (2012), the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts (2013), and Kunsthal Charlottenborg, DK (2013). David has won numerous awards including grants from The Pittsburgh Foundation (2012) and BNY Mellon (2008). His work is in the permanent collection of the Pittsburgh Public Schools and the Carnegie Museum of Art. David lives and works in Pittsburgh with his wife and two children.
