The Intricate Surrealist Paintings of Mike Davis
San Francisco-based Mike Davis is a self-taught modern surrealist painter who began his artistic journey in 1997.
His artistry is influenced by a diverse range of elements, from his mother’s woodworking and hand-tooled leather home projects to the art of the ancient world, surrealism, and the Northern Renaissance’s Flemish masters. Davis’ works are intricate surrealist compositions filled with symbols of mortality, folly, and hubris.
His artwork has earned a place in the permanent collection of the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art and is held in high regard in private collections worldwide. Beyond painting, Davis is a man of many talents – he is an active musician, a skilled woodworker, and the proprietor of the internationally acclaimed Everlasting Tattoo.
