About the Artist: David Tovey is a formerly homeless artist, educator and activist who works in a range of media. He is a photographer and painter as well as an installation artist and performance-maker. At the heart of David's practice is a very special quality - the ability to bring you to the subject in ways both beautiful and hard-hitting in equal measure in order to raise awareness about the social issues he tackles.

David has exhibited internationally, plus in locations such as Somerset House, Tate Modern and he is also the founder of the UK’s first One Festival of Homeless arts. He speaks regularly at housing and homelessness events and teaches art to people experiencing homelessness at the Pilion Trust and Passage Day Centre. His Man on Bench performances have earned him significant acclaim and have taken place on the pavement of the Southbank and the halls of Tate Exchange
