Tim Davies

Tim DaviesTim Davies is an artist living in Hannover whose work includes a wide area from pressure graphics, painting and plastic to inside decorations, fashion and table culture. The international success of his art is based on the fact that he provides for viewers of his work a positive feeling experience by easy and effective style elements which have become a brand name of his art through the years: A combination of typical, lively colours with for the artist typically lively, graphic lines. His paintings and graphic arts are full of movement and dynamism which reflects a happy life style, and which provides a statement for reasonability in everyday life to the art. With own elements of a for today typical, dynamic life-style and an unconcerned statement Tim Davies enriches the early beginning of the pop art movement in the 60s: positive joy of life.
