PAINTINGS OF THE DORSET LANDSCAPE

30th May to 3rd July 2020

David Atkins studied painting at some of Britain’s finest art schools including St. Martin’s School of Art and Winchester School of Art, gaining a 1st Class Honours Degree in painting in 1986.

The tradition of landscape painting has always been at the heart of David’s drawing and painting. He works directly from the environment, often revisiting places many times and in ever changing weather and seasons.

His paintings have been inspired by his immediate surroundings as well as his travels. Visits to New York, Italy and Ireland have resulted in a series of larger paintings that also aim to capture something of the essence of these places.

David has had many successful solo and group exhibitions all over the UK and has recently started showing his paintings at the Thackeray Gallery in London. His work is included in both private and public collections and has won awards at the Discerning Eye and the NEAC awarded . And has been awarded a number of prizes including the Horan prize for painting at the NEAC and the Façade International prize for painting at the Discerning Eye Exhibition. He was recently awarded the Baltic Exchange Prize for painting.

He lives and works in Dorset.
