David Ilan has established himself as a world-renowned artist. His career started almost two decades ago when the cast of Seinfeld posed for him. Over the years, celebrities from TV, movies, sports, and politics have personally posed for David's portraits. He creates his drawings using only hand-drawn dots, a technique called pointillism.
For almost 20 years, David has worked on tv and movie sets, in studios, and in the homes of some of the most famous people in the world. His portraits have been commissioned for celebrities' private use; others are created with specific causes in mind (American Cancer Society, Special Olympics of Southern California).
David’s other charitable drawings unite communities with common purpose, using art as a vehicle to ignite a movement. Hundreds of thousands of people, from over 150 countries, have dots placed in their honor in David’s “1 Dot = 1 Person" portraits.
Some of the celebrities who have participated in his projects include Dr. Maya Angelou, Scarlett Johansson, Danny DeVito, David Beckham, Adam Lambert, Diana Ross, and Vanessa Williams, just to name a few.
