Mark Davies is a contemporary British artist, whose limited edition print work reflects his lifelong fascination with the art of telling stories. Taking inspiration from the dark fables of Hans Christian Anderson and the Brothers Grimm, Davies combines his love of narrative with his passion for the Renaissance art of Piero Della Francesco and Giuseppe Acrimbolodo, and the surreal aesthetic of Salvador Dali. The result is a strange and singular series of works, saturated with beauty, calling to the viewer to be admired with its hypnotic and compelling intensity. Using contemporary techniques, Davies works with the medium of light, ‘breath[ing] new life into your favourite stories by providing the light you cannot find in the darkness and shining darkness into the light.’ His pieces use bold colour and dynamic compositions, which seem to flicker and dance on the page, as they depict moments from familiar narratives. Davies has been signed with Wishbone Publishing son 2014.
