David Bridgeman was born in Oxford and grew up in Abingdon. In 1987, he moved to Grand Cayman in the British West Indies to take up a government teaching post. In 2005 David left full time teaching to pursue a career as an artist and in 2014 was given a solo exhibition (The Road Not Taken) by the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands.
David’s work is strongly autobiographical, containing elements from his childhood which he spent ‘immersed in the Oxfordshire landscape’.
David will be exhibiting works relating to his fascination with flight (inspired by his father’s 1930s RAF Flying Manual), and the Wittenham Clumps, an area David frequently visited during his childhood.

Tanya Saunders has known David Bridgeman since the early 1990s. Before moving to London Tanya lived in the Cayman Islands for many years.
