A Day In the Life Of David Studwell

David Studwell is a contemporary British artist and printmaker. Having worked as an artist for over 20 years, he harnesses the spirit of the sixties and seventies, the cult of celebrity and the legacy of Warhol to produce iconic screen prints. Here, we spend a day in the life of David Studwell, from a morning run to closing the studio door at the end of the day.

MY ALARM GOES OFF…

I have a coffee and breakfast, sometimes go running and then begin my day. 

HOW I STARTED LIFE AS AN ARTIST…

I had a great time at art school and have loved art ever since I was a child.  

MY TYPICAL DAY…

I’m either in the studio or working on my computer from home. I get inspiration from all kinds of places; cinema, galleries, nature, a walk etc. 

MY MOST MEMORABLE ARTISTIC MOMENT…

I collaborated on a large screen print edition called ‘Elton John: Home Run-Dodger Stadium 1975’ with Elton John and Terry O’Neill. It took a long time getting the project off the ground because so many entities were involved. It was very satisfying when Elton John said he loved the artist proof and that I should go ahead with printing the edition.

THE WORST PART OF BEING AN ARTIST…

It is hard to switch off when you are an artist but that’s just part of being an artist.  

THE BEST PART OF BEING AN ARTIST…

It’s great seeing your work in people’s homes and hanging on gallery walls; I suppose it’s the cherry on the cake. Screen printing can be a frustrating process but it’s magical when your work really comes together.

AFTER I CLOSE MY STUDIO DOOR AT THE END OF THE DAY…

I usually just relax after the studio; maybe watching a bit of TV-Screen printing is very physical and I often work quickly; so it’s nice to put your feet up afterwards. 

IF I WASN’T AN ARTIST, I WOULD BE...


I have no real aspirations to be anything else-Very happy being an artist.
