David Bez | Manchester
Born and raised in Manchester, David was encouraged to paint from an early age by his mother, a fine textile designer in her own right. Pursuing his love of art throughout his youth, David emerged a graduate of illustration from Manchester Polytechnic in his early twenties and used the subsequent years to gain experience in the worlds of graphic design and glazed art.
Having now spent the past two decades as a professional painter, he works full time form his home studio in Levenshulme, South Manchester, just a short bus ride away from the bustling city centre and is enjoying a career which sees him widely collected and exhibited throughout the North of England and beyond.
This new collection of original works, which both fizz with the potent energy and urban-grit of the once-industrial city centre, as well as touching on the beautiful, and often deeply complex, world of moorland, countryside and rural landscape that surrounds his Manchester home. These are paintings which showcases his versatility as a painter and illustrate his enduring desire to experiment with his work, unrestrained by medium, style or subject.
