Art Brokerage: Brian Davis American Artist: Greatly influenced by the Dutch Masters, along with the artists of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco, Brian Davis is inspired by images of highly stylized renditions of birds and flowers and their intensity of color achieved by many, many layers of paint. A native Californian, born into a family of musician parents in 1946, Brian loved art all his life. Formally educated in Fine Art at Pierce College and California State University-Los Angeles. The perfection of the Nineteenth-Century French painting technique, called "pouchoir" gave Brian instant recognition as a serious painter and Master Print Maker. Since the early eighties Brian's focus on oil paintings and the further refining of his "value painting" techniques brought his body of work to new heights of artistic expression and perfection. Before he begins his artistic journey on canvas, Davis combs the fields and gardens near his Los Angeles home, searching for a flower or landscape that catches his eye. Listings wanted.
