David Farren is a painter of street scenes and landscapes living in France.

Born in 1972 in Wiltshire, he moved to the Perigord region of south west France with his family in 2014.


David has worked as a professional artist since 2000 and in that time has exhibited in leading galleries across the UK including solo shows in London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Dublin.


David is fascinated by the changing light within a scene and how it determines the mood of a place at a particular time - be it a busy London street or a quiet corner of France.


The painting process often begins with taking a walk and using his sketchbook to record ideas. David enjoys painting en plein air -mostly small studies that he can complete in one session -these then inform the larger studio works.


David's paintings are held in private collections in Britain, France, USA and Ireland. His work has featured in Paint and Draw magazine ,The Artist magazine, The One Show and France 3 Perigord.
