David Harris
United Kingdom
David Harris was born in Staffordshire. His interest in painting was sparked when at the age of nine he was chosen to attend Art classes on a Saturday mornings run by the Sutherland Institute. This was followed by Foundation Course in Art at Newcastle Under John Shelton. He read Fine Art under the Late Arthur Berry RA and George Mallalieu at the North Staffordshire Polytechnic in Burslem and attained a BA (Hons).

The artwork exhibited on Deviantart is a collection of pieces produced over the last 30 years.

your art is always disturbing, questioner, multiple. You leave a a painting, then you come back and find out something else......Where do you find your inspiration?
 Do you know the English painter Richard Parkes Bonington, this so unknown precursor of the Impressionists? If so, what is your opinion about him? He's one of my masters.
