David Attwood is an artist based in Perth, Australia. He acknowledges the Whadjuk Noongar people as the traditional custodians of the land on which he lives and works.

Attwood’s practice produces sculptural assemblages using contemporary commodities. His work is concerned with the auratic qualities of products and branded materials, especially those associated with work culture and discourses of productivity, entrepreneurialism and maintenance.

Attwood holds a PhD from Curtin University, and in 2019 completed the SOMA Summer Program, Mexico City. He regularly exhibits his work throughout Australia and abroad. His work has been shown recently at Bill’s PC, Fremantle; Cellar Door, Sydney; Low Gallery, Riga; scatalogicalritesofallnations, London; Savage Garden, Melbourne; Lodos Gallery, Mexico City; Station, Sydney; and Biquini Wax EPS, Mexico City.

Alongside his studio practice Attwood directs the independent project space Disneyland Paris.
