Hidden Door

David McDiarmid

Visual Art

David McDiarmid is a Glasgow-based artist working predominantly in the fields of painting, model-making and installation. Born in Paisley, he grew up in Ayr and studied at Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen where he graduated in Painting. David’s practice seeks to examine the notion of megalomania existing both historically and in today’s society.

In the last few years, architecture has been David’s main area of focus, particularly the means by which the built environment is often purposefully designed, constructed and used as a tool for power and propaganda.

For Hidden Door 2019, David will present a series of ‘cast’ paintings.
