Mark Davies is a mixed-media artist, best-known for his signature ‘Storyteller’ pieces, in which he captures the essence of popular films and fairy tales in his distinctive, hypnotic style.
Inspired by the compositional qualities of Piero Della Francesca and Giuseppe Arcimboldo, and the surrealism of Salvador Dali, Davies’ art is infused with magic. As with all good storytellers, he is unafraid to confront the darker themes underlying the stories he has selected to immortalise.
The devil is in the detail in this artist’s work. From a distance his vistas appear warm and inviting, but step closer and you’ll see nods to the underworld of each story, and clues to the themes of life that consume us all.
