Have you discovered Mark Davies yet? Then where have you been?
Always striving to create art with meaning and with genuine substance, Mark’s work reflects his thoughts and emotions, those influenced by life experience and those that form his character.
Originally educated in fine art, his career has since evolved into the digital world, mastering the use of colour, light and texture in his work.
Born in Bedford in 1978 and raised in the East of England, Mark Davies has held a lifelong fascination with telling stories.
Inspired by the eloquence of Hans Christen Anderson and ingenuity of the Grimm Brothers, Davies studied Fine Art in Cambridgeshire before embarking on a career as one of the region’s most successful graphic designers during his formative working years.
Drawing influence from the works and lives of Piero Della Francesca, Giuseppe Arcimboldo and Salvador Dali, the thriving reverence towards Mark’s artwork nationally led to him becoming a full time artist and his signing with Wishbone Publishing in 2014. Known for a strong narrative fused with striking visual imagery – Mark’s emotive, fulfilling and enrapturing works led to his now signature ‘Storyteller’ collection in 2015.
‘Mark Davies breathes new life into your favourite stories by providing the light you cannot find in the darkness and shining darkness into the light’
Mark enjoys creating a piece that on first glance looks fun but then if you look again you get the underlying sentiment of concept. Prints from his ‘Storyteller’ collection are now available at Heart Gallery and here is a short video for you to watch about him.
