David Hinnebusch has been painting in his wild, punk rock "found materials" style since 1995. He is influenced by music (he is the frontman for Los Angeles punk band Entropy) his love of the ocean and California history especially classic Hollywood noir. David grew up in West Los Angeles (Sawtelle) and has lived & worked in Venice, Santa Monica and Malibu, California since.
His work has been called wild at art!
"I asked Hinnebusch if he has any enemies, a question that made him pause and sit back in his chair. His answer included his signature lemons-to-lemonade spin: “Well, there was this one guy who really hated me. He would always walk past me on Venice and yell out, ‘How’s it going with your fake art?’ But I actually liked that phrase so much, I took it as my trademark. So it all worked out.” - Rena Kosnett, LA Weekly
David Hinneusch has been making art and putting his designs on clothing since 1984 when he worked for Abnormal Tees in Santa Monica, where he learned to print T-shirts printing for the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics. "We worked 18 hour days for weeks to meet our deadlines and I learned the screen printing trade. It was hard work, good money, and fun!"
