A solo exhibition from Benjamin Davies.
Born in Shrewsbury (Shropshire) in 1985, Davies showed an interest in drawing and painting. His life circulated around music, art and skateboarding in his teenage years. He spent a lot of time doing these three things which opened his eyes to expressionism.
Never having had the confidence to go to university and study art, Benjamin is self-taught and at present exploring the possibilities of charcoal on paper to capture the feeling and mood of the situation.
With a wide range of influences including Picasso, Dumas, Basquiat and Bacon, Davies approaches the moods and feelings of everyday life by using his fingers as much if not more than a brush.
This tendency brings out the emotion in his work and allows him to communicate what he is feeling or thinking at the time of creation.
