We’ve long been fans of photographer Brock Davis‘ wonderful sense of humor exemplified by his Instagram feed chalk full of original internet memes like Rice Krispy Henge or the Gummi Bear Skin Rug. Since we last mentioned him here his photography caught the eye of Banksy who included numerous new works by Davis in his Dismaland exhibition last summer. When he’s not making art or delighting his legion of Instagram followers, he’s also the creative director at Minneapolis-based space150. After taking a bit of a creative break since the end of 2015 Davis recently started publishing new images, some of which are included here.

You can see more of his work on on his website, or hear him discuss how brands can best utilize Instagram in an episode of Facebook’s Pub in Pub series.

Good morning

It’s been a long while since we last checked in with Brock Davis (previously) who seemingly dabbles in every creative field there is from illustration and photography to advertising and apparel. But it’s his Instagram account where his brilliance seems to be most highly concentrated, where every image has a mix of laugh-out-loud whimsy and a good dose of why didn’t I think of that. You can see more if his work right here.

Brock Davis Plays with his Food

May 31, 2012

Christopher Jobson

I never tire of seeing what Minneapolis designer Brock Davis decides to do with his food. From his famous broccoli house to his gummy bear skin rug and the fantastic rice krispyhenge, he never seems to run out of ingenious ideas. The destiny of the three cucumbers sitting in my kitchen has just changed dramatically.

Pooled Oil Paintings by Matthew Davis

January 18, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Berlin-based artist Matthew Davis creates these surreal images by using his brush to slowly drip oil paints into small pools. After each color dries over a period of several days a new layer is added resulting in a dense, multi-dimensional surface. The understanding and control of color that goes into this is beyond me. You can see more of his paintings and read an article about Davis in the German magazine Art (nsfw). (via this isn’t happiness)

Rogue Installations of Similarly Colored Objects Inside Big-Box Stores by Carson Davis Brown

May 1, 2017

Kate Sierzputowski

Using found objects collected from within big-box stores, artist Carson Davis Brown creates color-specific installations for his photography series Mass. The works are organized conglomerations of basketballs, laundry baskets, wrapping paper, and other mass produced goods, each arranged by color within the stores they are found. After photographing the works they are left as is, experienced by passersby as a break from the monotony of the weekly grocery store run and eventually disassembled by the store’s staff. You can see more of Brown’s assembled consumer experiments on Instagram and his project’s website massproject.biz. (via Juxtapoz, Catherine Edelman Gallery)
