David Cobley RP NEAC in conversation with critic and art historian Peter Davies, author of the book David Cobley All By Himself.


After a Foundation year at Northampton he dropped out of Liverpool School of Art to pursue a religious calling, but later returned to art after almost 10 years in Japan. Since being shortlisted for the BP Portrait Award in 1989, he has been busy with portrait commissions of leading academics, scientists, businessmen, politicians, writers, actors, musicians and members of the armed forces, as well as with other, largely figurative, paintings on more personal themes.
