Andrew Morton of the Red Arrows wrote:
‘2006 saw the Red Arrows invite leading modern aviation artist David Bent to collaborate as Artist in Residence. This remains a positive and enduring goodwill relationship with David the artist most closely associated with the team. The team exhibits David’s work on the walls of the team’s Lincolnshire, RAF Scampton home. That includes in the crew briefing room.
With a wonderful use of colour, expert detail and creativity, David’s work showcases both the excitement of flight and its inherent beauty. David’s art reflects the precision and engineering excellence of the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team. Further, he captures the imagination of those who see and draw inspiration from his pieces. Just as the Red Arrows do with every performance and display.’
Awarded Honorary Companionship of the Royal Aeronautical Society, David is credited with leading a new movement in modern aviation art.
