David Downes is a gifted British landscape painter known for his extraordinary seascapes, intricate architectural drawings, and expansive skies. He has a unique ability to recall places he has visited in detail and paint them from memory. David attributes this ability to his neurodivergent brain and his passion for drawing as a child.
David has received numerous high-profile commissions, including painting the BBC’s heritage buildings and the River Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant for the Savoy hotel. David was also commissioned by ITV to paint a 12-meter-wide mural over 5 days for the launch of a period drama, Sanditon based on Jane Austen’s last and unfinished novel.
During the pandemic, David was inspired to document the events and started creating more surreal and imaginative work. He focuses on the juxtaposition of history and modernity and often paints his scenes from an aerial position to capture the landscape in vivid detail.
David was offered a place at the Royal College of Art on the basis of a body of work, which he calls Disordered Development, in which he visually expresses his experience of living as a young person with autism.
David is also a Vice President of the U.K.’s National Autistic Society and regularly speaks on behalf of the charity. He now owns his own gallery, the David Downes Gallery, in Manningtree, Essex, England.
David has recently completed projects for:
- The US National Institute of Mental Health, Office of Autism Research
- Your Magazine
- National Autistic Society
- Clyde and Co LLP
