In 2017 his Orang-utan sculpture won the runner up award at the ‘Wildlife Artist Of The Year’ show at the Mall Galleries. In 2017 he also exhibited at Delamore Arts, Devon, Fresh Air 2017 at Quenington and Buy Art Fair, Manchester. David has worked on many commissions, such as Ring-tailed Lemurs for London Zoo.
