THE WHO & WHY
Tai Davis is a contemporary visual artist and award winning chef focusing on fine art photos, acrylic /mixed media paintings, and cake installations.
Tai Davis is self-taught and gathers most of his inspiration from Alchemic principles, food, personal experiences, minimalism and nature. He attended Southern Illinois University, for music performance (Cello) and has been cooking professionally for 12 years. His artistic platform Sacred Geometry was released in 2019, along with his first coffee table book entitled Tai Davis [Pastry]. In January 2021, Davis debuted his first museum exhibition, at Cedarhurst Museum for the Arts, entitled “Egg”. A series comprised of over 24 paintings, sculptures and prints celebrating the humble egg.
“I never set off on some life changing quest to become an artist, far from it…art found me. From an incredibly young age, I’ve always had the inclination to look past what’s present and to dig deeper and, with my art, I do just this. I love using food, trauma, memories or music as inspirations for many of my works, but from time to time, I love deviating away from these subjects and my comfort zone.”
In addition to original works of art, Tai offers limited edition giclee prints on archival, museum quality paper, canvas or metal.
His art is sold through several interior design firms and can be found in many private collections, hotels and private galleries throughout the Midwest
