David Tupper “Chula”: Painter, California
David Tupper “Chula” was born in 1968 and grew up in Chula Vista, California. He graduated from the School of the Creative and Performing Arts, attending the SDSU fine arts program, before moving to North Park in uptown San Diego. There he learned to tattoo, and exhibited his paintings at small venues such as the Peanut Gallery, Raw Arts and the Rita Dean Gallery.
David continues to be influenced by his youth spent so close to the California / Mexico border, utilizing bright colors and Hispanic imagery mixed with traditional tattoo and vintage American symbolism. David’s paintings are bright, striking, beautiful and raw.
