David Briggs is a still life and landscape painter from Clovelly, New South Wales. Since 1996 he has been teaching drawing and colour theory at Sydney’s Julian Ashton Art School and at the National Art School since 2009. Briggs’ applied research and teaching into colour theory have largely influenced his paintings, many of which are of Clovelly where he lives. His paintings represent his deep fascination with colour, natural illusions of light, atmosphere and perspective. Briggs has exhibited in selected group exhibitions in Sydney and regional New South Wales. Briggs is the author of ‘The Dimensions of Colour’, an online resource for modern colour theory. Since 2015 Briggs has been the Chairperson of the New South Wales division of the Colour Society of Australia.
