His paintings have a sense of depth and kinetic energy that draw the viewer in. Originally focusing on sculpture and glassblowing, his understanding of various materials responding to natural forces become apparent in his work.
Shingler holds a BFA from The Cleveland Institute of Art and was chosen to receive the highly prized First Agnes Gund Traveling Scholarship for international travel. David has exhibited work in Montana, Wyoming, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Michigan, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Houston, Colorado and North Carolina.
