  • About the artist
    David Nash was born in Surrey and trained at Kingston College of Art from 1963 to 1967. He later studied at Chelsea School of Art (1969–70). As a child, Nash had spent family holidays visiting his grandparents in the Ffestiniog Valley of north Wales. In 1966, he settled in the village of Blaenau Ffestiniog, where he still lives and works. Nash’s first solo exhibitions were held in 1973, and he has exhibited regularly ever since. His work has featured in important international exhibitions, including Aspects of British Art Today at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum in 1982; and in 1999, the exhibition, 'Sculptors’ Drawings 1945–90', at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. He had a major solo exhibition at Tate St Ives in 2004, and in that same year, was awarded an OBE for services to art. Nash’s work can be found in public collections worldwide, as diverse as the Tate, London, and the Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art, Japan.
