A self-described history nerd, Mike Davis is a San Francisco-based artist who paints scenes stuck in another time. His detailed oil paintings are rife with personal symbolism and minuscule narratives, evoking Renaissance painters such as Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Aertsen. Though he emulates the Northern Renaissance masters, Davis is entirely self-taught. He forayed into painting in his early twenties as an off-shoot of his tattoo career. The founding owner of esteemed San Francisco shop Everlasting Tattoo, Davis currently splits his time between his craft and his fine art, using his paintings as a cathartic processing tool to digest the events of his personal life.

The Riddler, by request, (part 2)
I exaggerate and combine forms — distended tree limbs, distorted insects and birds, intestines, breasts, bellies, feet, genitals— in order to question the origin of every living thing and show the interconnected web and relationship between creatures we consider separate from ourselves. Exploring the fragile and intimate quality of line and the explosive quality of color, I examine how the natural world is constantly being damaged and consumed, as well as how it in turn, is consuming us. My latest work challenges the destructive nature of human assumptions of superiority. It combines features from different life forms, to show inevitable links within earthly existence.
