BIOGRAPHY

DAVID SAWYER RBA

Elected a member of the prestigious Royal Society of British Artists in 2004, David Sawyer describes himself as a modern British Impressionist, working within the tradition of landscape painting. Born in ondon in 1961, David went on to study at Canterbury College of Art. After graduating in the early 1980s, he has worked continually as a fine artist, including a brief period as a scene painter. 

Today, he works between a small studio space in London, where he formulates his ideas, and a larger studio in southwest France, where he generally paints his larger pieces. He is primarily interested in architectural subjects and how light reveals the nature of its structure, as well as creates mood and atmosphere. His favoured subject matter encompasses everything from Mediterranean landscapes to the urban skyline of London.

While his principal medium is oil paint, he also uses watercolour as a means of exploring ideas and making preparatory studies. David has firmly established himself amongst his contemporaries, and his career as an artist has seen great success. He regularly shows at the Mall Galleries with the Royal Society of British Artists, and has also exhibited with the New English Arts Club, The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour and the Chelsea Art Society.

David Sawyer numerous awards include:

The Katherine William-Powlett Memorial Prize 1997 at the 1997 Chelsea Arts Society 50th Anniversary

The Daler-Rowney Award at the RBA 2005 Exhibition.

The Education Purchase Prize at the RBA 2006 Exhibition.
