David Haines studied at Camberwell College of Arts in London (1988–1991) and the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam (1994–1995). Since 2001 his work has been exhibited in several solo and group exhibitions in the Netherlands and abroad. The street culture of his birthplace, Nottingham was an important source of inspiration in his early work.

Images found online often form the basis of Haines’s work. Themes in his work include digital identities, on line communities, contemporary myths and the indexical nature of drawing itself.

In his videos, David Haines brings up the same themes as in his drawings, such as mass media, adolescence, cruelty and gay erotica. The videos are often based on YouTube videos and newspaper articles. He was awarded the Jeanne Oosting painting Prize (NL) in 2012 and the Irinox Disegni/ Drawing Prize at Artissima, Turin in 2017
