David was born in 1947 in Southampton, England. and trained at the Southampton College of Art and Design. Upon completion of his studies, he travelled extensively through Western Europe to gain artistic experience.
David lived in Paris for some time, where he gained the confidence and ability which makes a work by Morgan quite outstanding amongst his contemporaries.
Only a few artists can emulate David Morgan's gift for distance, detail and lighting in his superb landscapes of rural England. The almost photographic quality of a Morgan work manages to take you inside the painting, as though you are participating in the view, such is the realism.
So compelling is a work by Morgan that his reputation has extended far beyond his Hampshire roots. Whether it is a view of Yorkshire, Exmoor or the Hampshire Downs, one can easily recognise the locality by the accuracy and sympathetic interpretation in his work.
