David and Goliart is a play on words. On the one hand our name refers to the well-known biblical story. Dressed in his simple tunic and only carrying a slingshot and a pouch with some stones in it, David defeated his powerful opponent Goliath. On the other hand our name refers to art.
"Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable". This rephrased quote from Finley Peter Dunne is a slogan, that well-known urban artist Banksy made famous. It also sums up nicely what David and Goliart is all about.
