David Harban Chapel on the moor

David is a professional graphic artist for over 45 years, David worked for various design studios in the West Midlands before he established a graphic design business in the early 1980s. Always having a broad interest in fine art, in 1999 he discovered print making and two years later set up his own printmaking workshop.

He has explored many printmaking processes – relief, traditional and contemporary intaglio. Etching and aquatint is his preferred method of working because of its unique mark making qualities, its scope for experimentation and the satisfaction of working the copper plate to achieve the desired effect.

His imagery has been eclectic, working in the studio and the landscape. In recent years he has drawn inspiration from gothic stone carvings and in 2009 had a solo show at Lichfield Cathedral.

He also had work accepted in various national exhibition including the 7th International Mini Print Exhibition, 2009 Royal West Academy 7th Open Print Exhibition, 2010 West Midlands Open – Birmingham Art Gallery, Momo Tabernacle Art Competition 2011 and a prize winner at RBSA Print Biennial 2010 and 2012.

David became a member of Royal Birmingham Society of Artists in 2006 and is an elected member of the Easel Club.
