About the artist

When illness forced David to walk away from the successful restaurant business he had grown and loved, his life took a turn for the worse. Over the next couple of years David would survive homelessness, cancer, HIV, cardiac arrests and suicide attempts.

David turned to art in his darkest times. He is now an established artist and campaigner for the homeless. In 2017 David exhibited at the Tate Modern as part of The Tate Exchange on homelessness. David also runs the ONE Festival of Homeless Arts as well as teaching classes to other people affected by homelessness.

About The Pilion Trust

David has chosen for profits from sales of his collection to go to the shelter that saved his life, The Pilion Trust.

The Pilion Trust supports and advocates for our most marginalised people in our communities. We work with: Young people in crisis; Women at risk of harm; People who are homeless; Low income families; Older people living in squaller; People who struggle in life due to their complex needs.
