David Shillinglaw, Artist – High Barnet, London

This is my friend David. We went to Central Saint Martins together in London and he is one of the few who has survived and is making his living as an artist. He is the most energetic person I’ve ever met, seriously I don’t know what fuels this guy. He is so passionate about his work and ideas and he talks all the time, just try and stop him. His painting is time consuming and detailed and has got consistently better since I’ve know him. Like many other great artists before him, such as Barry McGee and Harmony Korine, he’s been taken under the wing of Agnes B, one of the original champions of street art before it all got cheesy as hell. His home, in a giant old warehouse in High Barnet, North London, where he has lived for 7 years, is a great example of someone inflicting their personality on every bit of the space making it a truly original and inspiring place.
