David-Simon Dayan is an artist born in Los Angeles, currently based between there and New York City. His work has been published in several publications, such as CAP 74024, Dearboy, DROME, Flaunt, Glassbook, Paper, Nylon, and Out Magazine as well as exhibited in The Museum of Fine Arts; Boston, The Brooklyn Film Festival, and New York City Independent Film Festival.

His work captures an intimate and poetic look into an avant garde world with a distinctive visual style and tangible feeling of warmth with his subjects. This is illustrated in Black Paint, a photographic series of individuals in the queer nightlife space, exploring his interest in celebrating the “other” in the settings that make them come alive, as well as INTIMACY, a series of coupling in it’s pure state, and VEIL, a series exploring the relationship between sexual consumption and violence.
