Mixed-media artist, Mark Davies is known for creating striking compositions which apply his own narrative to that of beloved movies, fairy tales and fiction. Inspired by the likes of Hans Christian Andersen and The Brothers Grimm, Davies likes to errs on the side of the sinister, composing his pieces to further explore the darker themes underlying the stories we cherish.
In Thou Shalt Not Fall, Davies applies his mesmerising style to 80s horror comedy, The Lost Boys. The piece explores how darkness resides so closely alongside normal life. While the bright lights of the boardwalk suggest all the fun of the fair, the positioning of the nods to the movie evoke a real sense of the danger lurking in the shadows.
When asked why he neglects to include the film’s characters in his artworks, Davies commented: ‘By positioning the details in the way that I do, it means they are there, just out of sight but you’re part of it, you’re amongst them, right amongst them.’
This print is from a limited edition of 45, signed and numbered by the artist.

About the artist
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.
A custom frame is the perfect way to complement your beautiful limited edition artwork. Our custom framing is a bespoke handmade service.
Own Art is a national initiative giving you the option to spread the cost of your contemporary art with 0% finance.
