David Davis

“I would say my passion lies with the idea, process, and outcome of perpetual creation, all while consistently  pushing one’s boundaries to truly evolve.  I feel as if carving one’s ideas, thoughts, and passions from the world around us has always been a part of my life and always will. I truly live for the moments of creating an awe inspiring piece; whether it’s depicting a moment of great sorrow, pure joy, or even the beautiful moments of simplicity and nothingness.”  — David Davis  ​

Born and raised in the heated deserts of west Texas, David has been involved with the arts and the creation process for as long as he can remember.  His parents, not only employed as a full time school teacher and police officer, owned and operated their own photography studio. David and his sister would be raised in this studio setting to which he attributes his familiarity and yearning for the “studio setting” lifestyle. Busy as they were, his parents still always found time to consistently involve David in as many activities and learning processes as possible. Immediately upon finishing high school, David headed east towards Austin and found San Marcos, Texas, where he obtained a degree in Fine Art Metal Smithing from Texas State University.  Studying under masters such as Beverly Penn, Roger Columbik, and world-renowned artist Gil Bruvel, he found an immediate lust for metal sculpture as well as classical surrealist renderings with a contemporary feel.   The list of media that he creates from is vast and impressive. With an expertise in metal, he also works from wood, glass, plaster, resin, sand, clay and many more. From functional to fully aesthetic, his work covers an immerse array of beauty and purpose. David has even proudly sculpted a life size bronze memorial statue for fallen Police Officers in Pecos, Texas. His passion for life and the creation process can be seen ever so clearly throughout his wide array of artwork, meticulously created to translate life, emotion, and concept into tangible beauty.
