David McCallam is a native of the Calder Valley and has studied and worked in this deeply historic environment for many years.
David graduated from Bradford College of Art but it is only very recently that he has been able to concentrate on expressing his local landscape through art. Having made this decision David says “it’s uncanny how situations and opportunities have presented themselves – they have found me rather than the other way round.”
David has worked with pastels, acrylic and watercolour in bold expressive ways and practiced in much of England from the far north to Lands End and also in Spain, Germany and Italy. David says “My latest work with the Yorkshire Colourists is my most exciting to date and is the direction I intend to pursue”.
