David Schmitt, also known as "Tuyo" is a self-taught artist and printmaker with Libyan roots based in the south of Germany. His work is inspired by archaic forms, ancestral mythology, and the repeating symbology of cultures around the world. Fascinated by similarities in expression and art he tries to point toward the importance of community, compassion, and the reflection of our modern values.
"For me, art can be a way to reconnect with our human experience as we often stumble upon the archetypical forms and symbols which seem to be reproduced again and again throughout different times in human existence."
*1994 in Bamberg, Germany.
