Born in 1972 in Wiltshire, 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.
Landscapes occasionally emerge as a chosen subject matter, inspired by the nearby Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Wiltshire and from his travels abroad.
David has exhibited widely in leading galleries across the U.K and his paintings can be found in collections in the UK and abroad.
