Mike Davis is a modern surrealist painter who currently lives and works in San Francisco, California. Self-taught, Davis began painting seriously in 1997. His inspirations range from his mother’s woodwork, hand-tooled leather, and home projects to art of the ancient world, to surrealism, to the Flemish masters of the Northern Renaissance. He renders complex surrealist works embedded with symbols of mortality, folly and hubris, fixed within whimsical compositions.
In addition to painting, Mike Davis is an active musician, woodworker and owner of internationally- renowned Everlasting Tattoo.
