Born in Liverpool, David O’Brien went to school at St Margaret’s in Aigburth.
During a holiday in the 1990’s in Barcelona, whilst visiting the various tourist attractions he visited Antoni Gaudi’s Park Guell which is where his passion for mosaic art was first founded.
O’Brien likes to make mosaics that are influenced by his own passions such as iconic music album covers, fine works of art, rare racing cars, vintage posters and iconic buildings. His attention to detail, discipline and patience are paramount in producing each artwork. Every mosaic work is totally unique and made with great attention to detail. Working mainly under the name of ‘Big & Small Mosaics’, O’Brien has appeared on BBC television - shows including ‘Home Is Where The Art Is’ and DIY SOS, both hosted by Nick Knowles.
Now living in rural Bickerstaffe in Lancashire, David O’Brien’s artwork is now going from strength to strength and he is being exhibited by a wide variety of galleries and held in private collections across the U.K. Europe and U.S.A.
