b. 1951Brighton, UK.Please take a look at www.david.davies.org.uk
I came to art via an unusual route.Originally, I studied Mechanical Engineering but left that to travel for several years and never went back.When I finally came back to England, I set up business with an old friend who had just finished an MA in Fine Art Painting at the Royal College. We designed 'one off' pieces of art furniture/ objets d'art etc.We were spotted by the Crafts Council in London, and for the next decade became part of a very select group representing Britain in many exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc.We finally fell foul of a so called 'agent' in New York, went out of business and returned to fine art as opposed to 'applied'.Exhibitions include:MANESPACE -N.Y.JACOB JAVITTS - N.Y.PACIFIC DESIGN CENTER - L.A.GENSLER INSTITUTE - S.F.MALL GALLERIES - LONDONESPACE PIERRE CARDIN - PARISPHOTOGRAPHY IN LYONSALCHEMY GALLERY - LONDONKING OF HEARTS GALLERY, NORWICHTROIKA 5, NORFOLK, UK.MADDERMARKET (2008),NORWICHLESSEDRA GALLERY,SOFIA, BULGARIADEDALO CENTRE FOR CONTEMPORARY ARTS, ITALY.RENCONTRES DES ARTS,MERS SUR INDRE, FRANCE.HORACE BLUE GALLERY, NORWICH, UK.BLUTENWEISS GALLERY, BERLIN.GRABADOS POR LA PAZ,MONTERREY, MEXICO.(2009)ELEMENTS, NOWRICH FORUM, UK.(2010)NCAS, NORWICH FORUM, UK (2010),
