David Spooner completed his Masters of Visual Arts at the Queensland College of Art in 2008.
Prior to this he gained his undergraduate and honours degree from the Queensland University of Technology in 2003. David has collaborated extensively with his friend and colleague David Creed as David/David. David Spooner lives and works in Brisbane and has exhibited nationally at Boxcopy Contemporary Art Space, Metro Arts, Next Wave Festival and Canberra Contemporary Art Space.
In addition to working in partnership with David Creed he has collaborated with Artist Run Initiatives The Wandering Room and Inbetween Spaces. In 2011 he was a visiting artist in the Sculpture Department at Australian National University, Canberra and in 2008 was the recipient of the Cathryn Mittelheuser Travel Grant.
2010 saw David complete a graduate diploma of education back at The Queensland University of Technology. He worked as a specialist art teacher from 2015 to 2016 and in 2018 had a solo show of his drawings at Wrecker’s Art Space showing 52 drawings he created after running over Brisbane’s Story Bridge 52 times.
Presently he divides his time between working as an activity assistant at the Children’s Art Centre in the Gallery of Modern Art, Social Work and his own art practice. His latest project involves creating one drawing every day over the course of this year and numbering it accordingly.
