David's semi naive, exhuberant work captures the cityscape of the North West of England with a hint of whimsy and quite often, a sense of humour. His subjects - Manchester and Stockport - make him popular with collectors of Northern Art.

 

His work is not an exercise in nostalgia - instead it is a unique interpretation of the themes used by the most important Northern School artists, LS Lowry, William Ralph Turner and Harold Riley.

 

David Alderman attended Salford School of Art in the mid sixties and went onto work in interior design, before returning to painting in recent years. He is fascinated by the ever changing landscape in and around Manchester and his vibrant, multi-layered acrylics on board perfectly capture the process of the evolution of the North West.
