The Turner Prize nominated artist
has David is passionate about supporting the project having lived and worked in
the city since gaining his Bachelors in Fine Art at the Glasgow School of Art
in 1991.

David said:

“I became involved with The Young
Gallery because I want to give something back to the city that I live and work
in. Through The Young Gallery, Impact Arts gives a quality artistic experience
to 300 children living in the East End of Glasgow each year, and to over 1000
members of the local community and I’m excited to be involved with such a
brilliant project!”

out of the bag!
