David Brunning, also widely known as TheKidBelo, is a contemporary artist from Calgary, Alberta (Canada) working in a wide variety of mediums since the late 1990's. A former graffiti artist, David "Belo" Brunning has expanded into the fine art realm with his abstract work. An avid traveler and brand enthusiast who is motivational through his art, speaking and overall presence, David seeks to create paintings that ultimately inspire others to see past the obvious, feel beyond the nominal and permeate the common connection.

With a wonderfully expressive and creative mind, David's work often reflects his personal life experiences or thematic groupings rich with style and tonal presence, voicing that wildly expressive, colorful street feel he is known for or the more subdued, minimalist approach he sometimes settles into.

Currently David resides in Calgary, Alberta.

His artwork is available through Masters Gallery, Calgary, Alberta, or through commission. Please contact David if you are so inclined to inquire about his paintings and work.
