David Paul Gleeson will be exhibiting with us throughout May in the Granary Art Gallery with his paintings which could be described as contemporary realism, with extraordinary attention to detail and colour.
His portraiture work has an incredible likeness to his subjects and his still life work captures the illumination and surface texture very accurately, whilst his painted objects sometimes are metaphors for entirely different subject matters.
Born in Manchester, David studied Visual Art at Aberystwyth University and Painting at Wolverhampton University. Since 1984 he has exhibited in numerous solo and group shows in London, elsewhere in the UK, the USA, and Johannesburg.
He has won prize in 24 exhibitions including ‘The Discerning Eye’ and ‘The Hunting Art Prize’. David was elected a full member of the RBSA in 2006 and in 2011 was shortlisted for the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition and was highly commended.
He has works in many contemporary collections and has been shown at Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery, the National Portrait Gallery and the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
David exhibited his work with us in our Fine Art Open Competition so we are delighted to welcome him back with his own solo show in the Gallery.
11am – 4pm
