David Farren was born in 1972 in Wiltshire and studied art at Bristol. He is now based in Lancashire where he works from a studio in his home when he is not painting on location.
He has exhibited widely across the UK with great success and his atmospheric paintings can also be found in collections across Europe and the United States.
David uses expressive brushwork and colour to represent the energy and movement of the urban landscape, providing a snapshot of everyday life.
Inspired both by his first visit to New York in 2000 and the mixture of Europe’s old and new architecture, his aim is to capture the ambience and individuality of some of the world’s most exciting cities. Within the cityscape he likes also to focus on people as they go about their daily life.
Fascinated by the changing seasons and how the varied light affects a scene he produces his high-impact images in acrylic and oils, enjoying the immediacy and versatility of both mediums which he finds particularly well-suited to his direct style of painting.
