Perry Davies is a printmaker, painter and formerly a designer/sculptor with work in collections all over New Zealand and abroad. His work inspired by vernacular and colonial architecture; buildings much like his paintings exuding ‘unconscious style’ and appeal. He custom frames each painting himself with recycled materials reminiscent of his iconic birdhouses. His stylized paintings are carefully tampered realities with real and imagined birdlife, perspectives and the odd person or vehicle here and there; one always feels as if he or she has visited the place in which Davies has rendered- but have we?
Davies has extensive exhibition history and has also tutored in printmaking at the ASA school in Ponsonby and more recently AUT.
