Dave Akehurst

I work mainly with acrylic on canvas. My primary subject matter is urban landscapes. These reflect my love of Sheffield’s unique scenery.

I have produced and sold many paintings over the past 15 years working first from a spare room at home to my current studio here in the small artist collective called The Drawing Room. Previously I rented a space at KIAC with whom we retain a special relationship.

The urban landscapes I specialise in hold a mirror up to to the places which I frequent or views which embody the special beauty of this great city. The unique mix of industry and nature provides endless opportunities for subject matter. I’m always on the lookout for that fleeting magic light, long shadows and sharp highlights.
