David Taylor

David Taylor A.W.I. F.V.A.S has been teaching his great love of watercolour to painters both in Australia and overseas since the late sixties. He is involved in regularly tutoring for the Australian and International Artist magazine.

Born in Melbourne in 1941, David was educated at the Caulfield Institute of Technology and the Melbourne School of Printing and Graphic Arts. David was the first winner (1979) of the Camberwell Rotary Overseas Travel Grant that enabled him to further his studies and expand his experience in London, Europe and North America.

His numerous achievements include over 100 awards in watercolour, including the Herald Sun Best Of Show Gold Medal Award at the Camberwell Rotary Exhibition 2002, a silver medal in 1976, and the Silver Award in 2007. He won the prestigious Victorian Artists Society Artist Of The Year Award in 1976, 1980, and again in 1989 and in the same year he received the Distinguished Leadership Award for outstanding services to Watercolour and teaching from the International Directory of Distinguished Leadership and a certificate of merit for distinguished service to the community.

Painting has been my life and it has rewarded me in so many ways therefore I must pass on some of my experiences and share the rewards with others. So many have been encouraged and moved on in their career as a result.

In May 2010, David was elected an international judge as the Australian representative in Shanghai as part of a judging panel from five countries. David’s work was selected for the National Collection in China in 2010. In 2011, David was the winner of Herald Sun Camberwell Rotary Art Show Gold Award Best of Show High and Dry St Aubins U.K., Kenneth Jack Memorial Award and Kenneth Jack Popular Choice Award.

Recognized worldwide for his painting and teaching, David Taylor’s work is regularly exhibited in Australia, England, the Channel Islands and Stockholm. He has held regular one-man exhibitions of his work since 1975. In each exhibition he expresses his love of working freely on location and his love of spontaneity, shape, light and colour.

“I like giving back what I have successfully earned throughout my career. There is a balance.  It is sad if one has a passion not to share it. The world of watercolor is alive and well and has a wonderful global following gained by sharing the love and knowledge of this beautiful medium. Enjoy!”
