David Tindle, RA HRBSA RE (born 1932)

David Tindle is best known for the technical accomplishment of his work in egg tempera, emphasising the stillness and emptiness of interior spaces. However, he is a versatile artist and has made use of various media of painting and printmaking to depict a wide range of subjects.

David Tindle was born in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, on 29 April 1932. He grew up largely in Coventry and, while still in his early teens, studied art for six months at the Lanchester College of Technology (1945-46). He then took a job at a local commercial art studio. Two years later, at the age of 16, he began to work with the theatrical scene painter, Edward Delaney, initially for a two-week stint at a theatre in Birmingham.

In August 1951, David Tindle moved to London, finding work with a commercial artist in Wardour Street, Soho, and then again with Edward Delaney, at his scenic studio in Princes Place, Holland Park.
