Life and works[edit]

David Geiser is an abstract expressionist painter, born in Rochester, New York in 1948. He studied at the University of Vermont, École des Beaux-Arts, and the Art Students League. In 1969, he moved to San Francisco and began drawing underground comix and cavorting with other underground comic creators such as S. Clay Wilson. He created several underground comic titles in the early 1970s, included Saloon, Demented Pervert, Clowns, Uncle Sham, DTs, Pain, and Edge City. He moved into oil painting in the late 1970s.

Geiser moved to New York in the early 1980s, where he concentrated on oil painting while moving into abstract expressionism. Geiser's paintings are tactile and deep, often being composed of many layers of shellack, pitch, tar, rope and scrap wood.

Geiser is married to actress Mercedes Ruehl and lives in the Hamptons with her and their son Jake.
