David is a Nottingham born Artist who now lives and works from London. He studied Art & Design at Basford Hall College in Nottingham from 1996 to 1997 and then went on to do a Graphic Design Degree at Salford University.
His work has been exhibited in Nottingham, Manchester, London and a pastel sketch piece entitled ‘This Is Where I Live’ has been exhibited in New York.
He mainly paints big close up head portraits and figurative work. The scale is important to give the subject dominance. He chooses to paint actors, poets and musicians etc. These are his influences and the people that inspire him.
This especially mattered while he was homeless as this gave him direction and something worthwhile to focus on.
With the help and support from Street Souls, David is now a full time painter and undertakes private commissions too.
