David Atkins
David Atkins attended some of Britain’s finest art schools including St. Martins School of Art and Winchester School of Art.

The tradition of landscape painting has always been at the heart of David’s drawing and paintings. David 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, Europe, Ireland and Scotland have resulted in a series of larger paintings that also aim to capture something of the essence of place.

David Atkins has established himself as an evocative painter of landscapes and, particularly, of the urban scene. His is a broad brush, the sweep and colour of it bold and clear, and he brings to the city the eye for transitory light and temperature and atmosphere that is more usually applied to rural landscape.

With him we explore cities, not always in the bright clear Kodak light of the Canaletto imitator, but at dawn and sunset and often in the damp truth of autumn and the tenebrous contrasts of the street at night; his is the sometimes sceptical eye of the honest observer, seeing London and Dublin, New York and Barcelona, as we have all experienced them.
