Before you enter a more immersive experience within The Floating Gallery™, you might be interested in knowing that Dave’s Hybrid VR Paintings™ have been featured in these books… and showcased in this exhibition…
“An artful journey through Chinese food and myths! A Curious Heart’s Wanderlust in China is filled with unique things, and I don’t just mean, Dave Alber’s artwork. For example, in the first section of the book, he helps the reader journey through the art using the powers of modern technology, specifically VR. In Hybrid Oil 360° Panoramic VR Paintings, readers use a QR code to immerse themselves in the artwork experience.”
“Visual Storytelling Par Excellence! Travel artist, Dave Alber’s Ravages Of Time & Permanence Of Wonder is visual storytelling par excellence! Dave’s work marries his images in traveling through both high and low aesthetics in Modern Contemporary Art using a diversity of artistic mediums. I am struck by the sheer joy I experience that is expressed in this visual narrative. In my encounter with this book I marvel as if a spirit that wanders alone through the world also leads one to a threshold transforming spirit to wonder, that witness who shares with others in simple happiness what there is that is eternally possible to share through art.”
Here is what people are saying about Dave’s art:
Panel at The Shanghai International Literary Festival:
“The effort that Dave put into making Bedding Shanghai… it’s just wonderful.”
“Honestly, I have thought so much about Puxi and Pudong, but I’ve never thought about it like this. So much effort. Thank you for sharing this with us. What a gift.”
“Very beautifully drawn. Simple and effective.”
Travel Art investors:
“What Lucian Freud does for portraiture, Dave Alber does for cityscapes.”
“These paintings can keep you open-minded and uplift your frequency. They contain the painter’s perception of life, which are always showing you an opportunity to see it’s possible to express who you are and be your own style. What’s the value of the works of paintings being able to encourage and inspire you to open your own unique adventure of life.”
“You would be surprised how a raised-and-born American thoroughly understands Oriental culture and arts. Dave, the painter, has grasped the essence of Chinese ink painting and well practiced it into these paintings. This combination of Western background and Eastern arts is quite profound and fantastic.”
