Art was always a hobby of David Rees’s as he grew up. As a child he spent a lot of time drawing but always shied away from painting. It wasn’t until the end of his time at school that he began experimenting with oil paint and really enjoyed it as a medium for pushing his work further. His A-level pieces started attracting the attention of school parents wanting to buy them. He went on to study History of Art at University, but stopped producing art himself.
“It is so important when painting to not be afraid to make mistakes. I give myself free reign to be brave with how I paint, the more conservative I am the worse the final product is.”
