Dave Pearson (1937-2008) was a London born artist who spent most of his working life in Rossendale, Lancashire.

The writer and critic Edward Lucie-Smith wrote:“It’s not often nowadays that a really major artist slips through the net. In Dave Pearson’s case the fact is the more surprising since his major enterprises, launched usually in municipal galleries in the North of England, were invariably both extremely ambitious and not at all difficult for ordinary spectators to construe and empathize with.”
