Biography of Markus Davies

German painter Markus Davies confronts the commodified blandness of urban spaces, encountering the “ordinary” and “unimportant” of the built environment we live in.

His current work combines multiple visual elements, allowing fragments of memory and spatial experience to form a dialogue. His approach to painting emphasises on ways of sensing, feeling and experiencing spaces differently. Markus constantly tries to transgress the boundaries between physical space and his own personal response to it.

His work has been exhibited and published in the Ireland and the UK. In one of his most recent projects Markus collaborated with 12 national and international Artist in Dublin, raising awareness of disused spaces within our cities. Currently Markus is preparing a body of work for his next Solo-Exhibition, aiming to portray an intimate experience of space and time.
