David McEwen’s formal training began when, at the age of 13, he was accepted into a special group formed at The University of Newcastle upon Tyne, England, by the renowned painter Victor Pasmore. Afterward McEwen added formal qualifications to his early training with bachelors’ and a master’s degree. He taught Fine Art at schools and colleges until the early 90s when he decided to become a full-time painter. In 1997 McEwen and his beloved late wife moved to a 13th century town in the South of France. McEwen’s work has been included in several magazines as well as in a number of prestigious exhibitions. His paintings have won awards in several international competitions and International Artist named him as a “Master Painter of the World”.
