A bit about him in 2002

David Beesley was born in 1978 and brought up in happy town of Romford (which it is, he says without even a hint of irony). He ended up at Reading University studying women's legs, although he was meant to be on a degree course studying Fine Art. Anyway, at Uni his paintings were good and personal, but a tad constrained, because of the academic environment. He's now letting his hair (which he actually doesn't have) down, and finding a new and fun and serious inventiveness and expressiveness in his work.
