David Bethell

David Bethell is a UK artist based in Leek, Staffordshire Moorlands and London.

Bethell's work is inspired by landscape and the natural environment, often looking at the contrasts and conflicts of human influences on landscape. His work also looks into our aspirations, desires, and our failure to achieve these unattainable dreams.

He uses a range of media from performance, installation, objects and animation.
