Currently based in the UK Bedfordshire countryside, Dave’s previous professional career had taken him throughout Europe, where he loved meeting new people and immersed himself into different cultures. Dave believes these life experiences have helped him overcome boundaries and enhance his creative approach with his long-term passion for art.
Now as a full time international award-winning self-taught artist, Dave’s artwork explores the relationship between figurative/abstract techniques and the balance between vibrant colours and monochrome tones.
Dave is a member of the fine art trade guild and frequently exhibits his artwork interna-tionally. Dave has been awarded the “Collector’s Vision International Art Award”, “Power of Creativity Art Prize” and “Voices of Tomorrow”, in addition to appearing in “Power of Creativity” art book from the International Art Curator Magazine. Dave has frequently ex-hibited his artwork internationally in Milan, London, Paris and USA.
“My paintings are all about emotion, light /shadow and capturing "the mo-ment". I strive to blend abstract and loose realism to create a piece that provokes thought and reflection of memories or aspirations in the eye of the beholder. Each time I look at a piece I have created I can always recall a soundtrack I have listened to which helped shape the artwork’s direc-tion.... a bit like having my own playlist in paint.”
