Star Wars Collection by Craig Davison

Craig Davison has become synonymous with capturing nostalgic scenes of childhood fantasy, young boys and girls re-enacting their idols. Due to the huge demand from his collectors, Davison has chosen to create a large collection of work around the cult classic, Star Wars. View the collection currently on display at Artworx Gallery, Newport, Shropshire.

5 Vaders!…Right We’re Having 5 Lukes! By Craig Davison

Born in Sheffield during the 60s Davison always had creative tendencies, but it wasn’t until he managed to get a job as a cartoonist that he took his art seriously. Drawing every day developed his skills, and he soon moved on to work as an animator and games designer. This progressed into 3D sculpting and finally after winning a painting competition, Davison got his big break and started selling his art work in galleries across the country.

Craig Davison is influenced by a graphic and urban style, he has painted work referencing Batman, The Wizard of Oz, Wonder Woman and James Bond along with many more. Davison starts each painting by adding a brown or orange colour wash to a white canvas. He sketches into the wet paint with a rag and then blocks out the shapes and shadows in a dark brown. He usually works on several paintings at any one time, in this way. Once the piece is dry, he adds definition with glazes of colour across the canvas, then finally paints over the figures again to give them a slightly naïve, grungy look.
