• Overview
    If you put paint on to a canvas with a brush, you know what it will do. But what if you use something else to apply the paint? It's going to do something different, perhaps something you never expected.

    Ian Davenport was born on July 8, 1966, in Sidcup, Kent, England. He studied at Northwich College of Art and Design and later attended Goldsmiths College in London from 1985 to 1988. During his time at Goldsmiths, he became associated with the Young British Artists (YBA) movement, a group known for their innovative and sometimes controversial approaches to art.

    Davenport gained recognition for his distinctive painting technique known as "Poured Lines." In this process, he pours paint onto a tilted surface, allowing it to flow and create intricate patterns. The result is often characterized by vibrant colors and dynamic compositions.

    Throughout his career, Ian Davenport has exhibited widely in solo and group shows internationally. His works are part of major public and private collections. In addition to his poured paintings, he has explored various other mediums, including printmaking.
