David Dalzell is a prize winning visual artist. He is based at his home in Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia, where he usually spends up to 6 months of the year, as well as travelling to New Zealand during the wet season, and returning to the UK, which is his country of birth. David works mostly in pen & ink as well as various paint media. The foundations of David’s self-taught art were formed whilst living and practicing in Edinburgh, Scotland. His skills have since been developed in the last five years whilst travelling and developing his entrepreneurial practice. David has now fully committed to his artistic career, travelling internationally, and gaining further inspiration for his artwork from various cultures. Each year he returns to the UK to create his artwork and supply to various international outlets.
Many of David’s pieces reflect, and draw inspiration from the natural world. Human impact and environmental awareness continue to influence his artistic style and develop the stories he tells with his growing body of work. David enjoys wandering from one medium to another, from the controlled detail of pen and ink, to the spontaneous yet gentle flow of watercolour or acrylic ink, to the malleable and definite application of acrylic and oils, as well as painting with light in photography.
