David Lee was born in 1990 and is a self-taught artist from Galway, Ireland. He realised his passion for art early on and left university to pursue a career as a full time artist. David moved to Berlin in 2016 and was influenced by a city renowned for its freedom of expression. This influenced his abstract style, allowing him to explore his craft without limitations or boundaries. David’s solo exhibition at AKA in Berlin in April 2018 showcased his exploration of darker abstract themes.
His work is rich with texture, colour and movement. David regularly experiments with new mediums and techniques. Acrylics, oils, pastels, charcoal, ink and other collage elements are all incorporated into his work.
Since 2019 David has lived in Vietnam and Barcelona. As an artist on the move, David’s work is rapidly evolving with every new place he visits and has now begun a new chapter in Glasgow.
His artwork is featured in numerous private art collections around the world, including Ireland, USA, France, Australia, UK and Germany.
