David Brammeld is a Staffordshire-based artist whose subject matter comes from his lifelong fascination with the ever-changing urban built environment – and the way in which it affects our daily lives. It is mainly the decaying and neglected areas that interest him and provide a rich source of subject matter to explore. His work is a comment on the rapidly changing world in which we live today. Although his pictures are devoid of figures, the sense of human presence is tangible.
An award-winning artist with many years experience, David works in various media: graphite, pastel, acrylic and oil as well as mixed media. He is also in demand as an art tutor, demonstrator and workshop leader.
David exhibits nationally and his work has featured regularly in exhibitions at the Mall Galleries – in annual shows by the Pastel Society, the Royal Society of British Artists (RBA), the New English Art Club (NEAC) and the Royal Society of Oil Painters (ROI). His work was selected for the recent, inaugural Derwent Drawing Prize also held at the Mall Galleries.
His work is shown several times a year at the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists (RBSA) Gallery. He became an elected Member of the RBSA in 2009.
His work is regularly shown in open art exhibitions throughout the UK and permanently shown at galleries in Stoke-on-Trent.
