  • Biography
David lives and works in Glasgow as an Artist, Curator and Admin Assistant, graduating with a BA (Hons) in Painting at Gray’s School of Art (2009-2013) and an MLitt in Curatorial Practice between Glasgow School of Art and University of Glasgow (2017-2018). Prior to this, he co-founded Visual Artist Unit (2014-2018), a Scottish-based artist collective that aimed to support the professional development of emerging and early-career artists.

As an artist, David has exhibited extensively throughout Scotland. Solo shows include: Megalomania (2014) at the Inverness Museum and Art Gallery and Projection (2015) at Interview Room 11, Edinburgh and group shows including RSA New Contemporaries, Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh (2014), Sluice Art Fair, London (2015) and Hidden Door Festival, Edinburgh (2017).

David has also balanced his practices by working in a series of jobs outside the arts sector, initially as a Creative Arts Intern at Sense Scotland (2014), an Assistant Art Tutor at Impact Arts (2014) and then working his way up from a Busser to Assistant General Manager at a Mexican restaurant in Glasgow (2014-2019).

David launched Artists’ Tuck Shop last year with an initial group of artists he worked with at Visual Artist Unit, following completion of his Masters project Artists’ Spread - a pop-up restaurant run entirely by artists.
