Barrie J Davies
Barrie J Davies has been a practicing contemporary artist for over 16 years, now based in Brighton. Originally from Milford Haven in Wales, he graduated from the Southampton Institute with a Fine Art degree in 2000 and completed his Master's Degree at the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff in 2004.
In his paintings, he uses a vibrant and colourful palette to illustrate his psychedelic and often humourous approach to themes regarding the human condition: notions of success, money, glamour, love, death, sex, gender & religion are picked at with a dry comedic use of tragedy meshed with absurdity. His paintings are examples of all that he loves: colour, pop culture, graffiti and all with a sprinkle of glitter. Barrie has exhibited across the world, with an impressive 21 solo shows and over 180 group exhibitions worldwide.
