Pencil charcoal sketch by David Anderson- Anderson went from being a shy child to having his artistic gift noticed and embraced. According to Anderson, his "God given gift" presented him opportunities which are ordinarily unavailable to children on welfare in the inner city of Milwaukee,Wisconsin.Anderson no longer uses the term "self taught" to describe himself. Instead he considers himself "GOD prepared," or visionary creating visual statements in a unique style deeply rooted in the will of God. Anderson has been described as a "Blues Artist" because of the strength of emotion his compositions evoke, "People have said that they can feel the joy and pain,witness the social injustice and can see history and heritage in them."
