David Pugh Evans ARCA RSA RSW (b.1942) is a Welsh born artist who lives and paints in Edinburgh. He produces hyperrealist paintings of seemingly mundane interior views, still lifes, building facades and street scenes.
David Pugh Evans was born in South Wales in 1942 and studied at Newport College of Art from 1959 to 1962 and the Royal College of Art, London from 1962 to 1965. He moved to Scotland and became lecturer at Edinburgh College of Art in 1965 until his retirement in 1998.
