David Eager Maher

David’s practice considers the possibilities of drawing, by combining his world view with the historicity of imagery and a contemporary visual culture awareness, his drawings function as a quasi description of time. Ideas and narrative are conjured through subject matter, surfaces, materials and deliberately adapting various historic drawing techniques. Having initially trained as a fabric painter, David then studied Classical Animation before going on to receive a BA and MFA in fine art painting, his practice is directly informed by all of these disciplines.

David graduated with a BA in Fine Art Painting from NCAD Dublin 2009, and an MFA also from NCAD 2011. He has exhibited widely in Ireland and Abroad.
