David Farquhar was born in in Paisley, Scotland and currently resides in Glasgow. His passion for art first presented itself during his early childhood when he was often found sketching. David studied Illustration and Printmaking at Duncan of Jordanstone Art School in Dundee and works as a freelance illustrator, portrait artist and also as a Make-up Artistry Lecturer. 


David has a deep interest in human behaviour and relationships leading him towards character based work and portraiture. Davids work is always hand drawn, then scanned and edited digitally. His current work is focused on monochromatic pencil drawings which show a fascination with light and shadow. He also likes to work with inks, markers and mixed media. Davids personal work often explores themes of relationships and LGBTQ+ issues.
