About me

 

Born 1962 in Somerset, England. Has had many exhibitions, has many clients, won many awards and gives talks worldwide. Lives and works in East London. The artist, illustrator and writer Paul Davis was born in Somerset, England in 1962 and has lived and worked in London since 1985. His work has been featured in magazines and newspapers including The New York Times, The Independent, Print, The Guardian, Eye, I.D., Arena, Blueprint, Creative Review and McSweeney's. Books include What Happens Is Good, Blame Everyone Else, God Knows, Us & Them and Lovely. Davis has had exhibitions worldwide, at The Barbican; Moderna Museet, Shanghai; the National Opera in Tokyo; Adam Baumberg; Andrew Roth; The Wapping Project; Agnes B. and others. He has won some awards over the years; Best Illustrator Working Today and Cartoonist of the Year are two. His website copyrightdavis.com won an honorary Webby. A brand new site is being built. Davis continues to draw, paint, write and photograph every day with the intention of describing the mad and beautiful state of the human species on this speck of dust called Earth. If there was no design, all of us would be living in total chaos. Design helps to tame the chaos: sometimes with prosaic indifference and sometimes with flair and imagination. Designers are the visual police; some are brutal, some see and understand the whole picture. It never fails to amaze me how design works; from tiny corner-shop receipts, through magazines, newspapers, posters and catalogues to packaging, town planning etc. etc. etc. and then worldwide branding for a huge global conglomerate in different languages for different cultures. Design helps and design sells and sometimes can radiate a feeling of enormous well-being. But it needs more drawing and less computer generics. It's a pollutant and boring.
