David  Brammeld

David is a painter whose subject matter is the ever-changing urban built environment - and the way in which it affects our daily lives. It is the decaying and neglected areas that interest him most and provide a rich source of subject matter to explore. His work is a comment on the rapidly changing world in which we live today, for instance when industry declines and areas become an abandoned wasteland awaiting future transformation and investment. Although his pictures are devoid of figures, the sense of human presence is tangible. By way of contrast, David also has an interest in the natural landscape and produces treescapes – preferring trees as they are in late autumn, winter or early spring when they are devoid of leaves, revealing their inner strength, structure and beauty. An award-winning artist with many years experience, David works in various media: graphite, pastel, acrylic and oil as well as mixed media. He runs a series of art classes and is in demand as a demonstrator and workshop leader. David exhibits nationally and his work has featured in exhibitions at the Mall Galleries - in annual shows by the Pastel Society, the Royal Society of British Artists (RBA), the New English Art Club (NEAC) and the Royal Society of Oil Painters (ROI). In 2014 David was elected as member of the Royal Society of British Artists (RBA). Image: Summer's Coming (pastel)
