Colin’s practice is diverse, taking in a range of media including drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking and interactive media.
Colin Davis was born in the town of Lurgan, Co Armagh, Northern Ireland. After completing a BA (Hons) Degree in Fine Art at the Belfast College of Art, he went on to complete a Fine Art Masters Degree in Manchester, England. His choice of media is dictated by materials and fragments that reflect today’s society and values, reflecting on post- industrial and working class communities. Colin has also been developing a successful series of large-scale commissioned portraits of wildlife over a number of years and is currently also a member of the Belfast Print Workshop.
Selected exhibitions and projects:
His work has been exhibited widely throughout Britain and Ireland, as well as Scandinavia and the United States.
During Summer 2002, Belfast and 2005, Louisville Kentucky he was one of five local artists involved in the 'Links That Connect Us' project - a collaboration which involved artists from the USA and Ireland.
