Mike Davis & Beau Adams

SEE EVENT DETAILS
111 Minna Gallery proudly presents the opening of two unique solo exhibitions with, "Forks in the Road" by Mike Davis and "It Was Written in the Future" by Beau Adams.

Mike Davis is a modern surrealist painter, who currently lives and works in San Francisco, California.

Possessing a multi-faceted set of interests, Davis began painting in 1997, and attributes much of his inspiration to watching his mother pursue craft projects during his childhood, and immersing himself in art history throughout his career. From helping his mother with activities ranging from woodworking, hand-tooling leather, and remodeling the family’s home, to engaging with ancient art and Netherlandish painting from the Northern Renaissance, Davis is a self-taught painter, who continues to render complex paintings of surrealist life, embedded with symbols of mortality, folly, and hubris, fixated within whimsical compositions.

In addition to painting, Mike Davis is a musician and woodworker as well the owner of a internationally-renowned tattoo shop, Everlasting Tattoo. His paintings and tattoo art have been featured in many publications, such as Juxtapoz Magazine, Art Ltd, Pop Surrealism: The Rise of Underground Art, Tatt Book: Visionaries of Tattoo and several high traffic art blogs. Davis has tattooed an extensive list of international and celebrity clientele, and is featured in a number of prestigious private art collections located throughout the United States, Canada, Japan, and much of Europe.

Beau Adams creates richly textured oil paintings on canvas and finely detailed watercolor works on paper, finished with intricate gold-leaf applique. In a style inspired by classical pietas and Byzantine era icon paintings, his work introduces modern symbolism and ideologies. Beau creates images of holy men with patterned vestments and Russian gang tattoos, vivid and energetic oil paintings borrowing from classical composition that highlight the violence often intertwined with religion throughout history.

Adams has been creating works intimately in his San Francisco based studio for the past decade. Having stepped away from the exhibition circuit except for one show at Athen B Gallery in early 2016, Beau has amassed a large collection of works that have yet to be exhibited and represent a culmination of a dedicated and profoundly personal, creative evolution.
