In his paintings, comics, performances, net art and videos, contemporary and recently forgotten cultural symbols confront one another inside a frenzied cartoon universe that is simultaneously celebratory and critical.

David Wightman lives in San Diego, California where he is a PhD candidate in music composition at UCSD.  There he teaches a course on the music, history and culture of Heavy Metal.
