Dave Rogers, a New York based Neo-POP painter, installation and sculpture artist and independent curator, who has shown his work nationally and internationally. Rogers work is reflective of the downfall of the art world today, consumed by mass production and controlled by an over exaggerated art market. “We are so focused on having what everyone else has, being driven by the market, that we tend to ignore the wonders of the world around us.” His Neo-POP works are a statement on the influence of POP culture on the world, using icons and images from eastern traditional cultures and combining them with western POP logos and icons that have become common symbols throughout these cultures, in many cases causing them to lose a sense of their own cultures and beliefs.

Rogers belongs to The Guild of American paper cutters, the Chinese Art and Oil Painting Associations, The Huntington and Patchogue Arts Councils, and Studio Montclair. His work has been featured in Long Island, Chinese, Korean and Japanese newspapers and magazines as well as on Fios1 Long Island and Guangdong Television in China. Rogers spent seven years as a professor of art and visiting lecturer in art and design through China before returning to New York. He is currently an instructor at 2 different art organizations, an art advisor and lecturer for emerging artists and curator at the Creative Arts Studio of Sea Cliff. Rogers has won awards for his work with the Disabled Peoples Union of China, and the Art Association of Jiangmen, China and the Chinese Government, and from several art organizations on Long Island. He is also the winner of the O’Malley Grant in Fine Art from Long Island University. He received his BA in Visual Arts with Honors from SUNY Old Westbury, and an MFA in Sculpture from Long Island University.
