David Hunt

United Kingdom

David Hunt is a self-taught figurative artist, based in Kent, UK. He was born in 1974 and his work is based on a lifelong fascination with the natural world - from the landscape that surrounds us and the rocks beneath our feet to the creatures with whom we share this space. David comments, "after a career that has ranged from working on oil rigs in Africa and Central Asia to running my own business building shepherd's huts for private clients, I have now returned to my first loves of drawing and craftsmanship. I am mostly self-taught and have studied intaglio etching techniques with john Howard R.E. and Melvyn Petterson R.E. The natural world has always been my abiding interest and, inspired by the fields and marshland around where I live, wildlife and landscape have always been a constant theme. There is no greater pleasure than a day spent out and about with my binoculars and a sketchbook.” Amongst other exhibitions, his work has been shown at the Mall Galleries as a finalist in the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year Competition and at the Society of Wildlife Artists Natural Eye Exhibition. He has also been awarded one of the Society of Wildlife Artists 2016 bursaries to attend the John Busby Seabird Drawing Course in Scotland.
