David J Porter
Born and educated in Cheshire, over the years David has successfully divided his career as a freelance designer and professional artist.
Mainly self-taught he specializes in contemporary landscape, achieving a semi-abstract / part representational composition. Inspired by his many walks and visits abroad which he sketches often in charcoal, then re-assesses the subject in the studio. By applying blocks of vivid colour in such a way as to ‘suggest’ parts of the landscape, he stimulates the onlooker’s imagination to interpret the landscape in a different way. He is continually moving boundaries in his work by keeping the process in a state of flux.
David has shown in solo and group exhibitions in numerous galleries also achieving recognition as a Laings Regional Finalist and Royal Academy Summer Exhibition Finalist. His work can be seen in private collections throughout the United Kingdom, Europe and Australia.
