About the XBureau

David Cofre Style

With a solid background on drawing, David Cofre started his career in painting using enamels on large format. His dynamic color work combines figures, abstraction and expressionism, focusing on the human presence and its relationship with the urban rituals, the industrial world and the forces of nature.

Under a humanistic theme, he also has taken on sculpture, using assemblages created with pieces of wood, branches and plastic. This approach, also seen in his painting, allows the spectator to be immersed in the monumental of his creative space.
