Biography / CYRCLE

CYRCLE is a collective consisting of American artists David Leavitt and David Torres, from Los Angeles, California. Their artwork emphasises on life, duality, and the human condition shared with the aesthetic contemplation of form, typeface, colour. The works of CYRCLE are featured in the URBAN NATION 2018 exhibition, ‘UN-DERSTAND The Power of Art as a Social Architect.

CYRCLE first gained the attention of the public in 2011 by the street art community through an April Fools joke on the fence of the LA Contemporary Museum of Art. It was from then onwards that CYRCLE’s artworks began making appearances at shows at local Los Angeles galleries. The CYRCLE Manifesto, was developed for their first exhibition entitled ‘WE NEVER DIE’ show and has since been an integral part of their identity.

CYRCLE’s impact on street art and the gallery scene has been massive, gaining the respect of the international art population. The duo work across a number of media, ranging from investigating form to encouraging participation, CYRCLE challenges and yet at the same time, embraces the full continuum of what art is.
