This is the Blog of artwork by Martin Davey. The artwork is a mixture of digital illustrations created in Photoshop, and paintings created on canvas using oil and acrylic paint media. The entries give some idea of the dates of completion, and influences and inspirations if any. The work is not listed in any particular order or time frame though generally the more recent work is at the start of the blog.
My two main websites are www.martindaveyfineart.co.uk, and www.martindaveyillustration.co.uk.
This is the design for one of the
Zebras (Brazilian Zebra) I will be creating for the 'Zany Zebras'
campaign, which will feature a large number of full size Zebras
sculptures occupying the City of Southampton, in the UK. It has been
masterminded by Marwell Zoo, located outside of the city with the aim
of creating awareness and the need for protection of Zebra. Each
Zebra sculpture will be painted by local artists and sponsored by
local or national companies. They are in place on the streets for the
summer term after which a glamorous auction is held for their sale,
the proceeds of which go toward the protection of the animal.
I will be creating two Zebras for the
campaign. The first one was sponsored by ABP (Associated British
Ports) one of the largest employers in the town in people and
physical area and completed in March. This second Zebra is sponsored
by 'Casa Brazil', a chain of Brazilian themed restaurants to be found
in Bournemouth, Portsmouth and Southampton. This Zebra will be
created during April.
It will be turned in to reality from
early April at the Marlands Shopping Center, using an empty shop unit
as a base where this one and others can be seen to be created. This
design was created/ drawn in Photoshop. The design celebrates Brazil and its important role in the 2016 Olympics, and used the colours of their nation flag.
