Dave came to screen printing pretty late in life and has now become totally possessed by it. Anytime that he's not in the studio printing, you will find him trawling around auction sites and flea markets looking for interesting found images and ephemera that he can try and print onto. In a past life, Dave spent over 35 years working in advertising, co-founding several acclaimed creative agencies. He uses the techniques of mass communication and propaganda to create evocative pieces that connect in an emotive and humorous way.

"I love the idea of creativity with a purpose. there has to be a reaction."

  • REAL HACKNEY DAVE

    I work with found images and materials, experimenting with the practice of screen printing to push the boundaries of what it is and can be. I have printed onto copper plates, I’ve printed with pheromones, sprinkles, glitter and gold leaf. My work aims to cause a reaction in the viewer, the juxtaposition of familiar images with overlayed text or a smattering of controversy or the odd swear word to accentuate. I love to use the techniques of mass communication and advertising, pairing with found imagery and objects and assertive text that challenges the viewer.
