North Carolina artist Julyan Davis, a realist painter, is exploring aspects of Modernism in his work. Both his paintings of urban streetscapes and his landscapes convey the essence of Southern culture. 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. Aside from his Southern landscape and interiors, Davis’ exhibit ‘The Appalachian Murder Ballads’- a study of how tradition affects the contemporary South, continues to tour regional museums.
