Debut Solo Exhibition - David Farren

Born in Wiltshire, David Farren now lives and works at his home in St. Annes, Lancashire in the England. He has quickly built up a reputation for his cityscapes and held a number of sell-out solo-exhibitions throughout the United Kingdom.
Farren uses vibrant brushwork and colour to represent the energy and movement of the urban landscape, providing a snapshot of everyday life. His aim is to capture the ambience and individuality of cities; specifically New York, Manchester, San Francisco, Dublin and Paris. Landscapes occasionally emerge as a chosen subject matter, inspired by the nearby Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, as well as from his travels abroad. He paints in oil and acrylic, enjoying the immediacy and versatility of both mediums, appropriate for his direct, expressive style. The portrayal of constantly shifting natural light within his urban scenes is particularly interesting. So too is his use of colour and ability to describe the softening effects of shadow and the harsh glare from sunlight reflected on glass, steel and rain-washed street; demonstrating his honed observational skills.
David Farren's paintings may be found in collections across Europe and America.
