About the Artist:

David Eagles:   Born 1970 in Melbourne, Australia.  David realized from an early age his love of painting.  Defying the wishes of his parents to become an accountant, he enrolled himself in life drawing classes in his mid teens.  By 1988 he had progressed to the Gordon Technical College where he studied Art and Design for two years.
 

In the spring of 1996 David made the decision to leave the stability of full time employment as a Graphic Designer to pursue the opportunity to develop his love of painting in Bali.  Although based in Bali he makes the most of this location to travel through South East Asia and has wandered the streets and galleries of London, Madrid and New York.

David is a figurative artist.  It is not the human condition that he explores but the human experience.  This interest led him to a group of Javanese fishermen who eke out a tough existence on the beach near his home.  The paintings in the 'Nelayan' (fisherman) series intend to convey how the artist feels when coming under close scrutiny from the sun burnt eyes of these fishermen.  David sketches fast and loose in charcoal so as not to lose the interest from the curious locals.  Once satisfied with the sketches, he then continues to develop his studies more completely in his studio.

David has been exhibiting regularly since 1988.  His works are in private collections in Australia, Indonesia and Taiwan.
