Biography
S. A. Davids was born and raised in the East End of London where he still has a studio. He graduated with a diploma in Youth & Community Work, a post-grad course in Advertising and Portfolio design and a certificate in Graphic Design. He has exhibited widely in galleries and art fairs in London, Paris, Miami, Chicago and NY as well as featured in UK newspaper editorial. He has also been published by King & McGraw and the John Lewis Partnership (card and print designs), Top Shop (t-shirts), to name a few. The art of S. A. Davids - like the man himself - defies easy categorisation: diverse in subject matter, medium and materials, his output encompasses cartoon-like doodling and sketches; more complex drawings and paintings on paper; reliefs and sculpture. Found objects and assorted pieces of wood are transformed into highly wrought works which never attempt to conceal their origin but evolve organically into art works, complementing the heritage of the object. Influences are found in the abandoned, the ephemeral, and the strange: objects, toys, packaging design, and black memorabilia. A strong Folk aesthetic jostles with a strong modern urban narrative to bring the old bang up to date and fused with the contemporary. For all the richness of technique on show, there is yet an economy of means which Stephen himself describes as “…the art of knowing when to stop”.
