Can you tell us about your background and how you came to be an artist?

– I am a self taught artist and have been painting for 4 years. Originally I trained as an Architect, which I realised I was not well suited for and after a short period in practice I was presented with an opportunity to work in Architectural recruitment, which I took whilst I figured out what it is was I really wanted to do! It turns out that was painting, which had always been in the back of my mind. So I quit my job, picked up a paint brush and decided to give it a go!

David Horgan Contemporary Artist

What inspired you to create the artworks you have made for The Ode To?

– All of my work is a semi fictional commentary on what I see in every day life. The lion riders are a playful representation of British youth and the portraits are my hispanic alter ego, the Bandito!

How would you describe your art and aesthetics in three words?

– Fun, raw, emotive.
