David Manley is a hard-working and talented artist who graduated from the University of East London with a BA in Fine Art, having previously studied at the Mary Ward Centre and Southwark college. David works vigorously across a wide range of 2D and 3D media, including drawing, painting, printmaking and mixed media. His work is especially strong in the spacial and physical qualities of drawing and sculpture.
David currently works part-time at the Southbank Centre, London. He is inspired by the ideas of other artists and is extremely knowledgable about their work. His most recent independent work has included ideas from science fiction and space travel, with a dramatic pair of wings for Icarus as a notable outcome. David’s determination and talent has led to his work being showcased in the ‘Inspired by…’ exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum. David has specific physical difficulties caused by cerebral palsy but this does not impede his artistic and conceptual abilities.
He aims to continue exhibiting his art at galleries throughout the UK.
