Artist of the moment……….Ron Davis

 

Ron Davis is an American painter renown for his abstract geometric shaped works. Ron Davis was born in the year 1934.

Davis attended the University of Wyoming before turning to art. He then attended the San Francisco Art Institute where he found abstract art.

The artist used mixed media in his works with many works consisting of acrylic paint, resin, and wood. Davis has a unique approach to his fiberglass works. He uses many thin layers of color that can be layered on top of each other without becoming muddy.

The way the artist builds up his layers of color is similar to that of a painter, the only exception being that when painting the artist layers color on top of color. When building his resin forms Davis adds his layers of color behind the previous layer.

The artist taught at the University of California at Irvine.

Davis is now based very close to Taos, New Mexico.

Below a short piece about Ron Davis by the Laguna Art Museum:

I find the artist reminds me most of glass master Dale Chihuly for the way he sees three dimensional forms and color.

Price range information: Works range from $10,000 to $70,000 for sculpture works. Prints can be found between $3,000 and $9,000.

Davis is included in many prestigious collections including the Tate London and the Museum of Modern Art located in New York City.

Ron Davis has such a wonderful style of painting. I enjoy his work for his great use of making three dimensional work on flat surface. His application of color seems loosely controlled but with a great sense of design and awesome results.

An example of his great sense of design is the fifth picture down from the top. In reality its a hand rolled zig zag cigarette.

Artist of the moment…….DALeast

DALeast is a wonderful street artist born in China. DALeast keeps his real identity hidden. The artist works in an easily recognizable style painting animals and other objects that look as if they are made out of thousands of pieces of metal that are in constant motion and action. Though I have posted many times about artists in other genres that are husband and wife, DALeast is also married to a world renowned street artist named Faith47. I have profiled her before as she is one of few women street artists working in South Africa. The couple spends part of the year in South Africa and the other half traveling the globe making wonderful art for us to enjoy.

The artist has been arrested one time. It was in Beijing just before the Olympics took place in 2008.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

In this clip we view DALeast and wife Faith 47 working on a mother and child work of art in New York City:
