About David Brett
Address and work:
Artist Introduction

My interest lies in creating paintings that express mood. The most important element for me is the emotional response the artwork evokes, not its literal detail. I like to tread the dividing line between the representational and abstract, and seek to create a rhythm in the painting with the use of colour. While the work is often based on a “real” location, I will change the structure of the scene to produce my own interpretation.


Working in acrylic, my technique involves overlaying sometimes clashing colour, using a variety of expressive brush and palette knife strokes, glaze and impasto techniques — so that the texture is also an important part of the finished piece. My influences range from David Hockney and Wolf Kahn to contemporary Mallorcan artists. I'm also inspired by the fluency and vibrancy of Van Gogh and the structure of Cezanne.  


I have a BA honours degree in Art and English from Oxford Brookes University and studied for an MA in Art History at the University of Reading. I'm based in London, and work as both a journalist for the London Evening Standard and as an artist. Although my training is in art and I have painted all my life, it is only in the last two to three years that I have chosen to pursue it professionally. My works have sold to clients both in the UK and around the world.
