By David Hulston


Born in 1952, David Hulston began drawing and painting as a child. His family were too poor to buy drawing books so his early artistic efforts were on the reverse side of wallpaper. He also recalls a new pencil being as rare a treat as the tin bath on Sundays!

At 11 years of age, David began practising judo, a martial art in which he excelled – achieving a
2nd Dan nine years later. However, this promising career was ended by “an over-relaxed attitude to a machine tool which unhappily devoured his right index finger”.

After a period working in Dammam (Saudi Arabia) on Cosworth engines and cryogenic and vacuum technology, David moved to Spain in 1997 and began to paint seriously.

His first solo exhibition – held in February at the Gallery Art Club, located in the offices of the Swedish magazine Svenska Magasinet – was the result of those efforts. The artist is single with one adult son (Morgan) and lives in Los Pacos, Fuengirola. /
