David Youds

David’s work comes from a celebration of the everyday. His work would be best described as an intimate portrayal of suburban life.

He prefers to paint in a more loose approach (sketching in oil) rather than an exact when it come to gathering visual information. He is influenced by artists such as Walter Sickert, the Impressionists and his contemporaries.

“My aim is to capture the light with paint and to attempt the impossible, which is to translate it onto a 2D surface.”

David Studied Fine art at UCLAN in 2005 but has since trained as a teacher, been on Sky Television 3 times reaching the semi final in 2019.

He regularly exhibits his work in open exhibitions and has exhibited with the Royal society of Oil Painter, New English Art club, Royal society of British Artists and Scottish Royal Academy.

He has recently been made an associate member of MAFA in 2021. Following in the footsteps of names such as LS Lowry and other renowned artists. He also paints regularly paints alongside the Northern boys art collective, in various painting trips around the country.
