David Klein was born in 1962. He started his working life in engineering, during which time he was fortunate to meet the sculptor John Jennings, and later become his assistant. This experience encouraged him to further realise his passion for sculpting, by doing a Fine Art degree at Staffordshire University (1992-1994.) He then continued his studies at the Frink School of Sculpture doing a postgraduate course in figurative sculpting (1994-1996).
David now lives and works on the South Coast of England, close to the quarries where he sources his materials.
"David's core belief is in form, and form is the beating heart of sculpture, His work is filled with life and bursting with energy. He has anchored his understanding in the things that matter and joins the select company of young sculptors who will make a real difference." (Martin Jennings FRBS, 2007)
His work, while undoubtedly rooted in the classical, is strongly influenced by primitive forms and is increasingly moving towards the more abstracted, allowing the natural beauty of the stone to speak for itself.
