David Ledger is a West Australian artist specialising in oil painting. He completed a Bachelor of Fine Art at Curtin and studied classical drawing and painting at the Florence Classical Art Academy in Italy. He has exhibited in Australia and abroad including solo exhibitions in Perth and Hong Kong. His work utilises traditional media and techniques. A common thread in his work is related to ideas of place, where both material and metaphysical planes closely link and reflect one another.
