Benjamin Davis



I have been drawing since I can remember. I was always making art in one way or another throughout my Fife School District education. After high school, I attended Green River Community College where I mostly just took art classes. A few years later, I attended the Art Institute of Seattle for two years. I learned much from these institutions and art teachers along the way but I consider myself mostly self-taught. My life, my people, my town (Tacoma!), my close friends-this is actually what my art is cut on.

I am attracted to all mediums and I believe all to be a medium. My artwork mainly consists of oil painting, drawing, cartooning, and chalk art-ala sidewalk and public parks. I enjoy watercolor and cut paper art too. I also have found my inner shutterbug with the advent of these wonderful pocket computers we all carry around with us these days.
