Determination and grit are two traits David Parkinson has in spades.
You wouldn’t know it by looking at his work, but he didn’t even start practicing art until he was 40.
David further developed his unique style after the course, with his key influences being graffiti, street art, tattooing and comics. He first exhibited his work in a Melbourne gallery in 2009.
As a result of a traffic accident, David today lives in constant pain.
David currently receives a disability support pension.
