David Nash, (b. 1945) is a British sculptor based in Blaenau Ffestiniog. Nash has worked worldwide with wood, trees and the natural environment. His large wood sculptures are sometimes carved or partially burned to produce blackening. His main tools for these sculptures are a chainsaw, an axe to carve the wood and a blowtorch to char the wood. Nash has had many important solo exhibitions and international surveys of sculpture. His work is represented in major museum collections around the world. Recent major presentations at National Museum in Cardiff (2019-2020), the Yorkshire Sculpture Park (2010-11) and Kew Gardens (2012) have underlined his international importance as a sculptor and land artist. Previous exhibitions have included the Serpentine Gallery (London) and The Museum of Metropolitan Art (New York).
