Farren, David (b.1972)
Born in 1972 in Wiltshire, David Farren now lives and works at his home in Lytham St. Annes, Lancashire.
Best known for his cityscapes, David uses expressive 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 including New York, Manchester, Edinburgh 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.
David paints in oil and acrylic, enjoying the immediacy and versatility of both mediums, appropriate for his direct, expressive style of painting. He is fascinated by the changing light within his urban scenes and uses colour to portray its effects on steel, glass and rain-washed streets.
David has exhibited widely in galleries across the U.K and his paintings can be found in collections across Europe and America
