David Coulter Artist

David, who grew up in Chorlton-on-Medlock, has been restoring and painting radiators from building reclamations for almost 50 years. But in his spare time he used to take his easel around Manchester. Particularly Oxford Road, Portland Street and St Peter’s Square, to capture the city in oil and acrylic paint. After painting for years as a hobby. David began to take his work more seriously after he had two heart attacks and doctors told him to take life easier.

Influences

David was great friends with the Legendary Northern Artist Arthur Delaney. You can see the Arthurs influence in Dave’s early work, however Dave has greatly evolved as an artist. He has the talent to be able to paint in various different styles, but seems to have settled down with his latest series of Manchester City Centre paintings. slightly abstracted but with hints of detail make his paintings incredibly powerful.

‘I’ve been going out for years sketching and painting the city. I absolutely love it and it helps me calm down. Manchester is a fantastic place and I want my pictures to show people what they might have missed as they go past the same places every day. I like to call my style of painting “Manchester impressionistic”. I think the city comes to life with a bit of rain. It makes it look a bit grittier and I try to capture the reflections and the people around me.’
