David Inshaw was born in the Midlands at Wednesfield in Staffordshire. He attended Beckenham School of Art and the Royal Academy Schools. He was a tutor at the West of England College of Art, followed by a two year fellowship at Trinity College, Cambridge.
David Inshaw’s painting ‘The Badminton Game’ was acquired by the Tate Gallery in 1973. It was a significant point in his career.
He moved to Devizes where the landscape continues to inspire his work. David regularly walks the tracks and footpaths of the Wansdyke and the ancient barrows between Devizes and Pewsey. His photographs act as a record and are used to help construct his paintings which are an interpretation of the landscape and an extension of his thoughts and feelings related to place.
David Inshaw works from his home and studio in Devizes, and is represented by the Redfern Gallery in Cork Street, London.
