David Rees has always been passionate about art, and studied History of Art at University before moving to London and becoming a full time artist.
Art was always a hobby of David Rees’s as he grew up. As a child he spent a lot of time drawing but always shied away from painting. It wasn’t until the end of his time at school that he began experimenting with oil paint and really enjoyed it as a medium for pushing his work further. His A-level pieces started attracting the attention of school parents wanting to buy them. He went on to study History of Art at University, but stopped producing art himself.
When he moved to London, he realised that he had lost something very important to him. He started painting again and saw it had the potential to be more than a hobby. After a fortuitous visit to a gallery and meeting a current up and coming artist he made the decision to quit his job and concentrate on making his first real body of work.
