David Early Fine Art (DEFA) is a full service art resource company catering to the needs of
interior designers, architects, restaurants, hotels (corporate/private), special corporate events,
large and small businesses, office spaces and private collectors.
DEFA was founded in Paris, France in 1996 where David Early, artist and owner, began
exhibiting work with the Marcher des Artistes, an International Exhibition Group. It was here
that David was an immediate stand out and was quickly commissioned to paint ceilings, portraits
and murals throughout France.
Today DEFA is located out of Los Angeles, California and specializes in, but is not limited to
the creation of custom site-specific original art works – oil/acrylic paintings, works on paper,
murals, graphics, concept installations and decorative painting. DEFA has had the great
privilege and pleasure of working with clients such as California Pizza Kitchen (worldwide),
Real Mex Corporation (nationwide), Patina Group, Marie Callender’s, Burke in the Box
(Celebrity Chef, David Burke), Disney (Los Angeles), Norms Restaurants, Las Brisas (Laguna
Beach), San Antonio Winery (Los Angeles), Napa Valley Grill, Citrus Grill, Pacific Design
Center, (West Hollywood) and Butterfields (Los Angeles) to name a few.
DEFA has a staff of talented artists, graphic artists, curators and installers working together
whose sensibility and technique (each different) help lend itself to virtually any client style
request, for example Modernism, Contemporary, Impressionism, Abstraction and more.
From the conceptual stages of design, to the creation and installation of artwork, DEFA
executes each project with extreme care, precision and passion.
