In a unique manner, David Drebin's work combines voyeuristic and psychological viewpoints. He offers the viewer a dramatic insight into emotions and experiences which many of us have doubtlessly felt at some point in our lives. After graduating from Parsons School of Design in New York City in 1996, David Drebin rapidly made a name for himself as an internationally renowned photographer creating images of movie stars, sports personalities and various entertainers and subsequently was commissioned for countless high profile advertising campaigns around the world.

David Drebin is a multidisciplinary artist working in various art forms producing limited edition works including Photographs, Lightboxes, Neon light Installations, Sculptures and Etchings on Glass.

In 2005, Drebin had his first solo exhibition at Camera Work in Berlin. This was followed by his first comprehensive illustrated book entitled “Love and Other Stories” in 2007 and this zeitgeist moment was followed by a stream of worldwide representation by some of the finest galleries globally.

Drebin's photographs are epic, dramatic and, above all, cinematic and have been collected around the world. In a unique and opulent way, Drebin stages femme fatales against the gigantic backdrops of cities such as Hong Kong, New York, and Paris. The panorama of the big cities, which, due to their format, are a tribute to cinema, serve as cinematic settings. With their impressive skyscrapers, they provide the viewer with a nearly infinite surface for the imagination. The distinctive tension and depth in his pictures arise from the free combination of such differing topics as humour and sex, melancholy and sex, and melancholy and humour. At Art Miami in 2010, his now sold out “Central Park” sold for a record price of $78,000 through Contessa Gallery who has featured Drebin in major Art Fairs since 2008 alongside art world legends Andy Warhol, Chuck Close and Helmut Newton.
