Mike Davis' A Blind Man's Journey
One of San Francisco's long standing and highly respected tattoo studios, Everlasting Tattoo, was recently profiled, along with owner Mike Davis, in Hoodline.com. In addition to a brief history on the studio, which has been in operation for 22 years, the article focused on Mike's fine art work and his solo show and book signing tomorrow, October 21st, at 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco, from 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm.
Entitled A Blind Man's Journey, the book and solo show feature Mike's modern surrealist oil paintings, described by publisher Last Gasp as follows:
Surrealist painter Mike Davis captures mysterious scenes in the style of the Dutch Masters. Davis uses oil paint to create an alternate world where anything is possible, combining arcane personal symbols with social commentary. His vivid, narrative work pulls viewers into dreamscapes where they are soon lost among burning birdhouses, cannon-toting eggs, anthropomorphous insects, and skeletons holding what may be the keys to it all. Will the forlorn subjects who populate his paintings spill their secrets? What happened among the rubble and where are the travelers going? Davis' tableaus can reveal important parables to the attentive mind, but only if we study well and learn to read his visual poetry.Buy A Blind Man's Journey on Last Gasp here and check more of his fine art work here.
