Ariel DavisGallery Manager
Ariel Davis is an artist living and working in Fort Worth, Texas. Her work reflects on humanity, relationships, and time, in the form of stylized figurative paintings. In her work you can find the idea of relationships at the core, that play with symbolism in telling a story. In preparation of creating a painting, she employs the process of photography, collage, and digital manipulation to create a unique source image, or she works from life. Many times she will engage individuals in the community to collaborate with her as subjects in her work. Capturing and portraying the energy and mood of a scene, group or individual is more important then the details, which is defined by her loose style and use of bold color.
She earned her BFA from the University of Texas at Austin, where she studied under Melissa Miller and Dan Sutherland in painting. Primarily a painter and muralist, you may have seen her mural work in Inspiration Alley, at Mistletoe Station in the Near Southside in Fort Worth, and in the new home of the Texas Rangers Baseball Organization at Globe Life Field. Her paintings have shown with the Fort Worth Art Collective, at her booth in the 2019 Main Street Arts Festival, and group shows at the Fort Worth Community Art Center and various galleries. Throughout her career she has been in over 35 exhibitions and has co-organized over 80 art events and exhibitions in the DFW area over the past 4 years. In 2018 she was named Best Fort Worth Artist by Fort Worth Texas Magazine and was Fort Worthian of the month in Feb of 2020.
Along with completing the two large works for the Texas Rangers Globe Life Field in 2020, she recently completed a collaborative project for the Mariachi Program at North Side High School though FGIII Fine Art Productions, and is expecting her first Fort Worth Public Art Project to be installed at the Texas And Pacific Station for TEXRail, Trinity Metro.
