Damien Davis (b. 1984) is a Brooklyn-based artist, born in Crowley, Louisiana and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. His practice explores historical representations of blackness by unpacking the visual language of various cultures, question how these societies code/decode representations of race through craft, design and digital modes of production. Made up of glyphic shapes, patterns, and images, the works interact in dynamic ways, that creating ever-shifting relationships and meanings, while brokering new associations and conversations.
Mr. Davis holds a BFA in Studio Art and an MA in Visual Arts Administration from New York University.
