It all started when...

Born in Peterborough, Cambridge in 1968, David L.Scholes left school at sixteen to become a Carpenter's apprentice. Thanks to his Grandfather who had taught him to draw from a very early age he spent most of his spare time drawing, sketching and learning the art. It wasn't until 2012, some twenty seven years after leaving school his wife bought him some acrylic paint and canvas from a local art shop and from then on he began to paint.

He has sold prints of his work globally and exhibited in Manchester, London, Bristol, Chester & Switzerland which has merited interviews and praise alike with international art publications. David’s work is studied and emulated by many artists and students. The painting 'La Obsesión received instant recognition with over a Million hits via social media platforms. David recently featured in a comparative study alongside the acclaimed artists Vincent Van Gogh and Edvard Munch.
