David Arsenault was born in upstate New York. From the 1970s onwards, he was influenced by Edward Hopper painting but did not study it until the 1990s. His influence is such that his style is very close to that of the artist. Arsenault studied at the University of Albany then exhibited for the first time in 1993. He has since participated in hundreds of local, regional and national exhibitions. He opens his own art gallery in 2015 in Rockport, Massachusetts.
David Arsenault is particularly inspired by Edward Hopper.
