A day later he is one of a group of artists taking part in a four-day show called “Something Borrowed” at Cultivate, an east London gallery, following it, on Saturday, with a month-long show in Glasgow.

Born in Workington, David grew up in Cumbria before studying art at London’s Middlesex University. After graduating David worked for Chrysalis Records, first as a designer and then as art director. His best known work from this period are the innovative and influential designs he produced for the cult group The Specials and their record label 2 Tone.

David’s paintings and prints have featured in numerous exhibitions, including recent shows at The Brighton Museum and Art Gallery, The Gallery in Cork Street, and The Coningsby Gallery, London. In May of this year David appeared on the BBC2 arts programme Show Me the Monet.
