Senior Lecturer Fine Art

Teaching Responsibilities

I am responsible for the 1st year Fine Art core modules ‘Fundamentals and Theories of Studio Practice’ and ‘Applied Creativity’. I also teach across the 2nd year and MA programmes. 


David Gledhill is a professional artist and has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally. He is a senior lecturer in Fine Art at the University of Bolton and a PHD candidate at Manchester Metropolitan University.

In addition to his activity as an artist David has contributed writing and reviews to numerous artist projects and publications. He is co-administrator of Rogue Artists Studios in Manchester.

His current work centres on the use of both personal and institutional photographic archives to produce series of paintings that address historical and political themes through the lived experience of their subjects. He was recently awarded a Cornerhouse (Manchester) commission to produce a film about his work with an East German family photograph album.
