David Hepher




David Hepher is a painter of remarkable originality. In this age of increasing polarity in contemporary art, his work lies at the junction between the conceptual and the traditional. Hepher's subject matter, ranging from near life-size suburban house-fronts to monumental tower-blocks, allies him with the avant garde; so too does his frequent use of real architectural materials like concrete or wallpaper. 

Born in Surrey, Hepher studied at Camberwell School of Art and the Slade. He was a senior lecturer in painting at Chelsea School of Art from 1981 - 1990 and subsequently became professor and head of Undergraduate Painting at the Slade .In the 70s he had exhibitions at the Serpentine and the Whitechapel.

His work is to be found in a number of public collections including the Tate, London, Museum of London, The Arts Council, British Council, Museum Boymans-van Beuningen, Rotterdam and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
