Mark Davies is a contemporary British artist, whose limited edition prints reflect his lifelong fascination with the art of telling stories. Taking inspiration from the dark fables of Hans Christian Anderson and the Brothers Grimm, Davies draws on the Renaissance art of Piero Della Francesco and Giuseppe Acrimbolodo, as well as the surreal aesthetic of Salvador Dali, to create a singularly beautiful and intensely hypnotic artworks. Part of Davies' 'Lost Hollywood' collection, 'Petrolheads' gathers together some of the big screen's most iconic cars, from the time travelling DeLorean to the Ghostbusters' Ecto-1. And where better to stage these illustrious automobiles than at a drive-in, parked before a huge, outdoor cinema screen!? With magical sparkles filling the foreground, like tiny, glowing fireflies, Davies's nostalgic print is reminiscent of the oil paintings of the great masters, deftly telling a story within a single, beautiful snapshot.
