David Fleck

David Fleck is an illustrator and architectural designer currently living in Glasgow. Having grown up in the heart of Edinburgh, David studied Architecture at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen and laterally at the Mackintosh School of Architecture in Glasgow. His passion for improving lifestyles within deprived communities across Asia often comes through in his work.

David Fleck had his first solo exhibition “Our Ancestors” here in The Red Door Gallery in April 2012.  We have had the pleasure of working with David since 2006 and continue to support his ever changing print folio with exhibitions and window displays.

Although inspired by local towns and cities, Fleck’s final folio of works could well be associated with many international locations. Every city is a playground of discovery, a world of chaos and experience waiting to be uncovered and shared. The relationship between a cutting edge, contemporary city and its people is, of course, reciprocal and influenced by the town planning and the priorities of our ancestors. Fleck’s cities depict this oxymoron, by illustrating classical architecture in a contemporary style – a pairing down of complex structures to their most prominent features. Fleck captures the character of a population through an illustration of the city, and characterizes a city through a drawing of one person. It is in the combination that we find a portrait of city life.
