He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.

Mike Davis
The biographical information on Mike Davis’ website describes him as a “modern surrealist painter”. Though his work certainly shows the influence of the original European Surrealist painters, notably Dalí, as well as their more watered down descendants the “pop surrealists”, it is in the work of the 16th century Netherlandish painters Hieronymous Bosch and Pieter Bruegel the Elder that he seems to find his greatest inspiration.

His work has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions in the U.S. and Europe. Davis is also a tattoo artist and the owner of the well known tattoo shop, Everlasting Tattoo.

    Modern surrealist is a very representative of the genre. This point can be seen from the art works they left. We can find some information in artisoo.—http://www.artisoo.com
