The Storyteller Returns by Mark Davies
Art with meaning, narrative with authenticity, storytelling like no other.
We are so pleased to unveil Mark’s spellbinding new collection. ‘The Storyteller Returns’ features four brand-new pieces that epitomizes Mark’s ability to capture the hearts and imagination of his audience like no other.
Born in Bedfordshire in 1978 Mark studied Fine Art within the region with his early works being inspired by the compositional qualities of Piero Della Francesca and Giuseppe Arcimboldo whilst finding inspiration in the surrealism of Salvador Dali. A highly successful graphic design career later evolved that saw him set up his own thriving creative marketing agency. Now living in St Neots, Mark works full-time as a professional mixed-media artist from his beautiful converted brick barn studio within the Cambridgeshire countryside.
‘The challenge for me was to create a piece of art that was digital that didn’t look like it had been ‘photoshopped’, for the viewer to be immersed in the image and to embrace it’s qualities without caring or even knowing how it had been created. To piece together a large number of different objects to create an intense scene that has been harmonised and united to look like it has always existed in that way takes tremendous skill and I have always striven to perfect my techniques over the years to deliver a beautiful piece of digital fine art
Taking you back to where it all started in his formative years as a professional, full time artist, Mark has created new chapters that continue to expand on, and position earlier works with mesmerizing imagery that are each driven by his unique multi-layered narratives. Re-imagining adored childhood fairy tales that include ‘Alice in Wonderland’, ‘Mary Poppins’, ‘Peter Pan’ and ‘Snow White’, this truly beautiful collection showcases Mark going back to his roots whilst also demonstrating his incredible transformation as an artist and visual storyteller.
