Born in 1972, David Farren now lives and works at his home in Lytham St. Annes, Lancashire. Since turning professional in 2000, David has quickly gained a reputation as a modern impressionist, using open brushwork and colour to represent the energy and movement of the urban landscape. He aims to capture the ambience and individuality of cities and provide a snapshot of everyday street life. David paints in both oil and acrylic, enjoying the immediacy and versatility of both mediums, appropriate for his direct style of painting. He is fascinated by the changing light within his urban scenes and uses colour to portray its effects on steel, glass and rain washed streets. Recognised as a major talent, he exhibits widely in leading galleries across the UK and his paintings can be found in collections across the country and abroad.
