David Cobley is a painter based in Bath, England. His work covers many themes, but he continues to be fascinated by the human form, and by the way we think and behave. He divides his time between complex figure compositions and portrait commissions across the UK and abroad.
In 1996 he set up Bath Artists’ Studios, which provides courses in the visual arts and is the largest provider of studio space in the city. It is working to increase its investment in community arts learning projects, and, by owning premises, to become Bath’s permanent visual arts centre.
