David Mach is a Scottish sculptor and installation artist known for his dynamic and imaginative large-scale collages, sculptures, and installations using diverse media like coat hangers, matches, and magazines, among others. The Scotsman, a local online newspaper, describes his work as big on gesture and big on proportion, it demands your attention and gets it. Many of his installations are temporary and constructed in public spaces.He studied arts and specialized on sculpture at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design. He chose this art because he considered it to be the most demanding, physically and intellectually. He first had his solo exhibition in 1982 at the Lisson Gallery in London. You can say The Scotsman is right. His huge presentations got the worlds attention and quickly established his reputation. That exhibition was followed by countless international exposure.
