Mike Davis is a modern surrealist painter based in San Francisco. Self-taught, Davis began painting in 1997. His inspirations range from his mother's woodwork, hand-tooled leather, home projects, to art of the ancient world, surrealism, and the Flemish masters of the Northern Renaissance. Mike renders complex surrealist works embedded with symbols of mortality, folly and hubris, fixed within whimsical compositions.
His works are featured in the permanent collection at Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, and also in prestigious private collections around the world. In addition to painting, Mike is an active musician, woodworker and owner of internationally renowned Everlasting Tattoo.
