David McCracken

David McCracken was born in Glasgow and moved to Kemnay aged 8, a small quarrying village with a large hole at its heart. After studying painting at Duncan of Jordanstone Collage of Art in Dundee, he settled in the northeast of Scotland to pursue his first love of printmaking.

Sculptor David McCracken mounted his first solo exhibition in 2000 and has been exhibiting throughout the Country since. His works, primarily from fabricated steel, have been included in many outdoor exhibitions including Headland Sculpture on the Gulf, Shapeshifter and Sculpture in the Gardens. In 2013 he was recipient of the Parsons & Brinckerhoff Award for Excellence in Engineering at Headland Sculpture on the Gulf and winner of the Wallace Arts Trust NZ Sculpture Award.

He is currently Print Curator at Peacock Visual Arts in Aberdeen and has his work represented in many distinguished collections including The Collection of the Bank of New York Mellon, The Scottish Parliament, Aberdeen Art Gallery and The De Beers Collection.
