David Gamble

Artist and photographer David Gamble was born in East London and grew up primarily in the countryside near Cambridge. After drumming in Cambridge rock bands in the 1970s, he attended the famous Ealing Art College in London. Prior students include musicians Freddie Mercury, Pete Townshend, and Ronnie Wood. Gamble found a passion not only for painting but narrative figurative photography. In 1987, Gamble went on to photograph one of his most notable projects, Andy Warhol House, East 66th St, NYC.

In 1984, he began photographing for national and international publications, including The Observer, TIME, LIFE, Newsweek, and The New Yorker. Warhol’s manager Fred Hughes became a supporter of Gamble’s work. Shortly after Warhol passed away, Hughes asked Gamble to photograph the artist’s house and personal possessions before they were auctioned at Sotheby’s. In Andy Warhol House, East 66th St, NYC, Gamble found beauty and insight in mundane objects, from medicine cabinets to cookie jars. The photographs became history and resulted in a collection of images that still continue to gain recognition. The Warhol Medicine Cabinet is held in the Warhol Museum's collection.

Gamble’s photographic portraits have earned international esteem and numerous awards. His museum accolades include images of Sir David Lean and the physicist Stephen Hawking in the National Portrait Gallery in London and of astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.

Since an early age, he has also pursued painting due to the encouragement of his mentor, the art critic and writer David Sylvester. He painted for the last 25 years in his studio in East Hampton, NY, and now lives and works in New Orleans.
