David Colannino

David is a writer, illustrator and filmmaker from Providence, RI. He received a BA in Philosophy and English from the University of Rhode Island. His work deals almost exclusively with creating fictional places and populating them with histories, geographies, flora and fauna, which usually means he is drawing pictorial maps or describing the origin of the Birch Wizard. This is currently David’s third year as a mentor at New Urban Arts where he will be teaching screenprinting.
