David Graham

David was born in Africa and grew up in Nigeria, South Africa and Zambia. Born to a South African mother and Scottish father, he eventually moved to Scotland where he has spent his adult life. David first graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in the mid seventies and has since completed a masters degree at ECA. He is married with three grown up daughters.

Having travelled abroad extensively during his professional career, much of his work has been inspired by the landscape and coastline of wild places. As a student, oil was his favoured medium but he enjoyed using water based paint and, in much of his earlier work, watercolour and gouache were his favoured choice. His recent work however has largely been executed in oil, acrylic and mixed media.

David’s painting clearly suggests an intimate association with the outdoor environment. His paintings combine bold applications of opaque colour and subtle translucent overlays with expressive,abstract subject matter.This has resulted in fresh, vibrant work with the essential element of recognisable yet intriguing imagery.

The research for his most recent paintings embraces the landscape and rugged shores of Scotland and has substantially influenced both content and style. His interpretation and execution of each painting reflects powerfully experienced emotion and a unique personal vision.
