About

My name is David Diehl.
I live and work in Zürich, Switzerland.
Basically I'm a free artist, but I also do commissioned work as illustrations, murals and football icons.

I have worked for Arsenal FC, LA Galaxy, Zwölf Magazine, Pickles Magazine and many others.
Football legends like Ronaldinho, Francesco Totti and Zico have posted my work.
I am even the proud owner of a like by the hand of god.

Due to the overhelming reception of my work in the football world it is important to be noted, that I am not a football artist. Football is one theme of many I am interested in.

Quotes

"In short, David's style is unique and utterly match winning. His 'ikonen' series is one of many miles; it has travelled around the globe with appreciation not short coming. His Socrates inspired design particularly is a cornerstone of triumph." - Soccerbible (USA)

"Arte de David Diehl - Muito bacana!" - Ronaldinho (BRA)

"David Diehl kicked off the 2016 Match poster series with a bang!" - LA Galaxy (USA)

"El tiki taka pictórico de Diehl" - Old Skull (ESP)

"Some of the best football art we’ve seen comes from the hand of David Diehl, an illustrator and artist based in Switzerland." - Saville Rogue (GB)

"Sometimes art makes you emotional. Which art does and which emotion it evokes is very personal, but David Diehl's art does it to me. Already familiar with his classic ikonen series for quite some time, the discovery of the series Keepers and miroir n291 especially hit the enthusiasm emotion button. {...} but most definitely the quality of David's work got the blood pumping to show him here!" - Art loves Sport (NDL)

"... when I stumbled upon something I had never seen before and never thought to see in my life. A painting resembling that of the Byzantine icons of Jesus Christ, yet the Real Madrid legend Raul took his place instead." - Kicks to the pitch (USA)
