“My innate desire to paint the portrait was informed by my 20 years of work practicing and teaching Anatomic Pathology at Harvard Medical School.” Most of his subjects came from the LGBT community, and since 2018, his style has moved from facial portraits to full-figured families and their children.

David Genest’s recent mixed media works are group portraits rendered in monotonal acrylic, ink, charcoal and photo transfer. Depicting human moments in the domestic lives of contemporary American LGBT families, they are part of his effort to increase the visibility of LGBT families, a demographic that carries significant influence on political, cultural and religious debates from the national to local level.
