Davia King


Artist Davia King’s work is bright, bold and layered with meaning. Through careful color selection she creates a backdrop on which she then embeds her interpreted images, producing striking works of art for the canvas and the street.
Enlisting the help of models, Davia reads the essence of a person and then paints it onto her canvas. What is revealed is a rich reduction of a single character, that at the same time contrasts against the whole. All of the uniqueness of a single person is blended with the essences of the others who participated, everyone brought together into a galaxy of connectivity. Each grouping is joined to form something larger than themselves. Davia puts the unique messages of these peoples into a hieroglyphic of pictures and lettering scribed onto her canvas.
