The White House, Washington
Good afternoon --

I'm a reporter who covered the police beat in Baltimore. Today, I make television shows. And last Friday, my phone rang. Someone on the other end told me that the President of the United States wants to have a conversation about criminal justice policy in America.

In his effort to try to reconsider some of the sentencing excesses and the levels of incarceration that have become so problematic in America, the President wanted to discuss these issues with me -- particularly because a lot of them were rooted in a television show that we did several years ago called "The Wire." In that show, we were trying to explore what the drug war has become in America and what it was costing us as a society.

So I went to Washington earlier this week and sat down with the President. We shared our experiences, our perspectives on the drug war, and the changes we hope to see.

See what the President had to say:

Watch our conversation here.

Secretly, in my heart of hearts, I don’t want to be in the entertainment industry. Having been a reporter, everything after that tends to feel less rooted to reality. So the President’s call was not only astonishing, but seemed to be an incredible opportunity.

It was a candid conversation. And ultimately, a hopeful one.

I hope you'll watch and share this with everyone who cares about improving our criminal justice system.

Because I can tell you that the President certainly does.

Thanks,

David Simon

The Station Agent provides a glimpse into the intersection of lives in our fleeting world. Shadows of former selves are reflected in this mirrored world. The crackle of distant radio transmissions seems to blend with the staccato of binary code. Daily trains often lead us to the mystery of life itself. Currently on view at the LA Art Show in the Sandra Lee Gallery - Booth 642.

My painting "Thursday's Child" is put up for sale on Saatchi Art just in time for Earth Day 2015. A celebration of the joy of living. Love and compassion are necessities for living. Compassion expresses deep sensitivity to the sufferings of others and a fierce drive to help alleviate those sufferings. Compassion is also the realization that we - human beings, animals, and the earth itself - are all interconnected. Eleven years ago, I wrote abo...

Why museums hide masterpieces away
In major museums around the world, some truly great works of art are hidden away from public view. What are they – and why can’t we see them? Kimberly Bradley finds out.

I spent much of the summer in Paris researching the fabric of this great city. My painting Pigalle is a vibrant yet mysterious homage to Paris. Currently on view at the LA Art Show in the Sandra Lee Gallery - Booth 642.

Story
Introduction

Currently I paint in an old airplane hangar in Santa Monica, California. The recurring sound of airplane take-offs and landings from the active airport runaway outside my studio reminds me of my own history of travel. 


After I finished my Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art at UCLA (University of California Los Angeles) and my Master’s Degree in Fine Art at NYU (New York University), my wanderings took me from the U.S. to Asia to Australia to Europe and back, again and again. These wanderings have helped provide a series of spaces that appear within my paintings.


Within the past year my paintings have entered collections in Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro, Paris, and Amsterdam as well as Los Angeles, San Francisco and Boston. My latest solo exhibition ran from September 25, 2010 until January 2011 at the Manifesta Maastricht Gallery in Maastricht, The Netherlands.
