Biography

Julyan Davis

Julyan Davis is an English-born artist based in Asheville, North Carolina. He received his art training at the Byam Shaw School of Art in London. In 1988, having completed his B.A. in painting and printmaking, he traveled to the South on a painting trip that was also fueled by an interest in the history of Demopolis, Alabama and its settling by Bonapartist exiles. Julyan’s work has been exhibited from New York to Europe and is in many public and private collections. Recent acquisitions include the Gibbes Museum in Charleston, the Greenville County Museum of Art (South Carolina), the Morris Museum (Augusta, Ga.) and the North Carolina Governor’s Mansion and Western Residence.  His series ‘Dark Corners: The Appalachian Murder Ballads’, interpreting traditional American ballads through the contemporary South, has been touring regional museums since 2012 with accompanying lectures and musical performances. In 2018 he was artist-in-residence at the Gibbes Museum, where he began the book ‘The Mermaid Storm’ in collaboration with South Carolina poet Glenis Redmond.
