Julian Davies is a realist painter recently relocated to the Washington DC area from Guildford in the United Kingdom, where he was previously a member of the “Surrey Artists Open Studios” group. Although he has spent a lifetime pencil sketching as a means of relaxation, it was only during a five year period in Lima, Peru that he decided to use his honed technical skills to delve into the dimensions of colour through oil paints on canvas. His subject matter is varied, but, inspired by the deeply evocative light and colours of South and Central America, there is a distinctly Latin American flavour to many of his paintings. His eye for detail is meticulous and his passion for painting comes through in his works, with every part of the painting addressed with equal care.
He has had works exhibited at the Holmfirth Art Week Festival in his native Yorkshire and the Lewis Elton Gallery at the University of Surrey, whilst a number of private sales have led to paintings adorning walls on four continents.
All of Julian’s paintings are for sale (unless otherwise indicated), either original or in print, and can also be bought in giftcard form. Please contact him direct for details.
