DAVID SAWYER

Biography

David is a London based artist who studied at Canterbury College of Art. After graduating in the early 1980’s he has worked continually as a fine artist, including a brief period as a scene painter. He is primarily interested in architectural subjects and how light reveals the nature of its structure, as well as creates mood and atmosphere. His favoured subject matter encompasses everything from Mediterranean landscapes to the urban skyline of London. While his principal medium is oil paint, he also uses watercolour as a means of exploring ideas and making preparatory studies. David has firmly established himself amongst his contemporaries, and his career as an artist has seen great success.

 

He has exhibited in numerous galleries, in the UK and at the Cross Gate Gallery in the USA. He annually shows at the Mall Galleries with the Royal Society of British Artists.

 

Elected a member of the prestigious Royal Society of British Artists and the Chelsea Arts Society David describes himself as a modern British Impressionist, working within the tradition of landscape paintings. In the last decade he has worked between a small studio space in London, where he formulates his ideas, and a larger studio in southwest France, where he painted his larger pieces and ran summer painting courses.

 

In March 2019 he travelled to the Caribbean with Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall as official tour artist. His work is held in many public and private collections, including the Royal Collection.
