Artist-in-Residence: Damien Davis

From Nippon, With Love: Kids Stuff (Illustrator Study), 2012

Damien Davis is a American artist, based in New York City.

Born in Crowley, Louisiana, at a young age his family moved to Marlboro, Massachusetts before ultimately settling in Phoenix, Arizona. It is because of these dramatic geographical shifts that his work is deeply rooted on ideas of race, culture, and representation. His work in digital print, drawing and sculpture is concerned in deconstructing cultural codes and iconography present in modern culture.

  1. Damien, I am so proud of you! Students may succeed inspite of the teacher but the teacher needs the success of the students to claim the reward.
