Being a co-founder of a very successful graphic design business, Mark Davies describes the freedom of his art practice in comparison to his design career...
“For my art there is no brief, there are no restrictions or brand guidelines, it is an opportunity to truly express myself and stay true.”
From the east of England, Mark Davies lives in Cambridgeshire and is a mixed-media and digital artist. Mark strives to create art that has meaning, intrigue and substance, his work reflects a whole range of emotions which are largely influenced by his own life experiences.
Looking at his compositions and how he focuses on linear perspective, it is clear to see how the work of Renaissance artist Piero Della Francesca has had an influence on him. Mark also cites Salvador Dali and Guiseppe Arcimboldo as being influential. Those surreal inspired elements are evident in how Mark takes objects and uniquely places them in various settings to transform them into something completely different.
