Teaching artist David Barnett, co-founder of Brooklyn-based design studio Noble Signs, will discuss the vanishing art of handpainted signs in New York City, followed by a handpainting workshop using both freehand and transfer techniques found in the typographical works featured in American Perspectives.

David Barnett is a graphic artist from New York City. As a Creative Director, he has worked in design, illustration, apparel, publishing, branding, and signage. In 2013, he co-founded his own studio called Noble Signs, specializing in branding and signage. His illustrations have been featured on the album covers of Curren$y, Ski Beatz, and Murs; he has also done illustration and design for Erykah Badu, Future Islands, Bun B, Real Estate, and Cam'ron and Jim Jones of the Diplomats, among others. In the spring of 2014 he held his first solo exhibition at Poppington Gallery in the Lower East Side, including digital illustration, several large paintings, and works in neon and LED light. He exhibited in four other New York area shows that year, in addition to exhibiting at Miami Art Basel. In 2016, he self-released his first book, Green Sky, in a limited edition of 300 copies. As a designer with Noble Signs, he has worked with clients including Pentagram, Gensler, the Art Students League, Whitney Museum, Lawrence Wiener, Yoko Ono, Afropunk, BMW/Mini, Opening Ceremony, Marlow & Sons, and more.
