David Polzin was born in Hennigsdorf in Brandenburg and grew up in neighboring Velten. During his six-year studies, he studied art for one year in Israel at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design. At the Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin (KHB) he completed a diploma with Prof. Eran Schaerf (2008) and a master student degree (2009).

After graduation, he had his first solo exhibition in Berlin (Galerie Anselm Dreher) and his first international solo exhibition in Brussels (Galerie Waldburger Wouters) in 2010.

Since then, he has exhibited internationally, including Japan, Russia, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland and the USA. Since his first institutional solo exhibition at the MMK in Frankfurt a.M. (2013), the focus of his work has been on the German-German unification of the GDR and the FRG and the Wende era. In his works he creates design hybrids, with a focus on seating furniture and utility graphics, consisting of East and West German elements.
