Born in 1946 in Burbank, California, Brian lived most of his life in the San Fernando Valley outside of Los Angeles. After a stint in the Army, 1967 to 1969, he attended California State University LA. Emerging from University as a master of the Nineteenth-Century French painting technique “pochoir,” Davis earned instant recognition as a serious painter and print-maker with his exquisite floral paintings. Painting his favorite flowers and landscapes, Brian Davis transforms exquisite blossoms like roses, calla lilies and dahlias into romantic and compelling images with sharpness, color, movement, edge and light. Brian Davis' paintings are found in some of the most sophisticated private and public international collections including The Los Angeles Museum of Art, the Huntington Library, The Grunwald Center for Graphic Art, at UCLA, The New York Botanical Garden and the Carnegie Museum of Art.
