About

The Original Pastel painting by David Napp is framed behind the glass. The Artwork is signed and ready to be displayed. David Napp was born in London in 1964 and trained at Canterbury College of Art. This award winning artist has been a full-time painter since graduating with a Diploma in Art and Design with first-class honours in 1985. That year he was also runner-up for the National Student of the Year award from the Chartered Society of Designers. David has been exhibiting his work since the age of 19 and has been the subject of many one-man shows in London and throughout the UK, as well as ten shows in the USA and shows in France and Holland. He has twice been awarded the Elizabeth Greenshield Award for young artists, both in 1986 and 1990.In 2013 he received the prestigious Pollock Krasner Foundation Award from New York. In addition David has participated in many mixed exhibitions and art fairs since 1986 including the Royal Watercolour Society, the Royal Society of British Artists, the Pastel Society, Art London, and the Affordable Art Fair. He spent much of 2009 painting commissions on the Northern Italian Lakes for David Capewell, a NATO General who subsequently became the Chief of Joint Operations for the British Armed Forces. Following this he was commissioned to paint a 5’ x 4’ Pastel of Old College by the Sandhurst Military Academy as a celebration of their Bi-Centenary, which was unveiled by the Duke of Kent on the 13th of April this year. He also has works in the collections of Eric Idle, Keith Chapman, Sir James Dyson CBE, James Herbert OBE, David Hufton and Michael Wolff. In 2010 he became a member of the Chelsea Arts Club in London. He mostly divides his time between the South of France and Italy. He is bilingual in French and fluent in Italian. TEACHING CAREER: Having finshed his training in 1985, he was invited back to teach drawing on the foundation course at the Kent Institute of Art and Design at the age of 24. He continued to do so for 6 years before making the decision to move to France. Since then he has taught for numerous private institutions and art societies and has given dozens of demonstration lectures throughout the UK. Each year he runs a project in a primary school in London, where he teaches observational drawing with pastels, with the objective of encouraging young talented children. These projects have helped them to achieve and maintain a Gold “Artsmark” from the British Council. He has also run his own summer painting courses in the south of France and in Italy for the last 12 years. Since 1988 he has written >numerous articles and demonstration pieces for national and international art magazines and has contributed examples of his work to many art tutorial publications over the last 20 years.
