The Artist Behind The Blackness
Inspired by the greats who came before him such as Brooklyn graffiti pioneer Jean-Michel Basquiat, Nick Davis, a St. Pete, FL native, began sketching and painting at a young age. In 2019, Davis took on digital artistry after epilepsy left him unable to work. Using an iPad gifted to him by his wife, he began to experiment with computer generated artwork. He soon realized that he was not only determined to master his technique, but that he wanted to use the artform to depict the raw emotions of Black citizens in their day-to-day joy and struggles.
