David Shillinglaw Mural at Affordable Art Fair Battersea Spring 2023

A brand-new commission for Affordable Art Fair, Battersea, street artist David Shillinglaw joined us at the Fair to create a large-scale mural called Bodies of Land and Water, which visitors saw taking shape live on site!


David's practice shifts between the street and studio using a variety of materials and mediums. He has created large scale murals all over the world including at London's Olympic Village. At an impressive 5 metres long, it probably won't fit in your apartment, but fans of David's work headed to Turner Art Perspective (TAP) Gallery for more pick-upable pieces.

Margate based artist David Shillinglaw was born of British parents in 1982 in the Middle East, which may explain his thirst for travel and exhibiting in galleries worldwide. Since graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2002 he has exhibited in galleries in Japan, China, The Gambia, Holland, and key cities such as NY, London, Berlin, and Istanbul.


David Shillinglaw is a British painter and muralist, known for his works which explore human nature, success and failure, and language people use in the context of their experiences. David grew up in London. He was interested in art since childhood, as he used to doodle and draw his favourite cartoon characters all the time. Soon he realized that a career in art is the one he needs to pursue, and he started his education at Central Saint Martins in London, eventually graduating from it in 2002.
