Artist and curator David Gryn was born into a Jewish family in New York in 1963 but has lived in London since he was a child; his father, Rabbi Hugo Gryn (1930-1996), served as assistant rabbi and later as senior rabbi at the West London Synagogue from 1964-96. David Gryn trained as a painter, studying at St Martin’s School of Art in London. Many of his works are inspired by his own upbringing, as well as his father’s experience as a Holocaust survivor. He has participated in group shows including the Ben Uri Open Exhibition in 1985 and three years later, in 1988, he held a joint exhibition at Ben Uri with Laura Godfrey-Isaacs. In 2001, Gryn founded Artprojx, a company aiming to provide a space for digital and video artists and potential investors and galleries looking to support their work, going on to establish Daata Editions, of which he is currently Director, a platform that allows viewers to download specially-commissioned digital art onto their own personal devices. From 2010 to 2017 Gryn was the Curator of Film and Sound at Art Basel in Miami Beach. He lives and works in London.
