The most constant focus throughout David's work is the human condition. Sometimes representing a particular person or action, other times mapping entire environments and systems. Using very basic materials and techniques to achieve an often naive representation. The works lend themselves to each other, creating an abstract narrative, each piece acting as a cell in a greater, ongoing story board, taken from David's observations, experiences and imagination.

David works as a freelance artist making a continual body of drawings, paintings, objects and books. His work has been applied to a variety of contexts, including illustration, graphic design and theatre set design. David describes his work as:

"somewhere between the representation of a thing, and the thing itself.I am interesed in double meanings and contradictions. I enjoy the human touch and all the mistakes that come with it. I often work directly onto objects i find, therefore i am not always in full control of what i make, this is very important to me, and i see this as a dialogue between myself and the ever changing environment around me. My work changes day-to-day and is influenced by a multitude of things. expressing ideas and the environments and conditions inwhich the ideas exist."
