“My head is always filled with new ideas all scrambling to get onto canvas first. Once they’re there I like my paintings to have a slightly naïve, grubby look with lots of energy – which, when I think about it, sums up my childhood.”

On Saturday 22nd August 2020 it's our pleasure to host a Meet the Artist event with Worcestershire-based artist Craig Davison at Bournemouth's biggest contemporary gallery, Westover Gallery.

With complimentary glasses of bubbly, one-on-one time with Craig, personalised dedications, and the chance to see exclusive limited editions and original pieces, this is an event that you won't want to miss. RSVP now!

About the Artist

Craig Davison has enjoyed drawing for as long as he can remember and art was his favourite subject at school. In the late 80’s he worked as a cartoonist, working on pre-school comics, the style of which has helped inspire his instantly recognisable fine art pieces. Craig Davison began his artistic career at a computer games company as an animator and games designer, where he began sculpting reference figures for 3D animation. In 2007 he entered a contest held by Washington Green. Craig finished in the last three. That was it, the life of an artist beckoned! Many artists inspire Craig. Amongst them are: the comic book artist Mike Mignola; the simplistic still characters of Yoshitomo Nara; the energy of Goya and the superb illustrations of N.C. Wyeth. Craig also cites his childhood as the biggest source of inspiration for his work. He tries to capture the endless summer holidays spent out on his bike with friends, rescuing Mexican villages from bandits!
