The main reference being at the back where the wall has been bricked up to hide the tunnel and there’s an orange glow to hint that something’s still going on.

    It’s mainly based on the Daniel Craig set of films, being that this is his final year as Bond. You can see him there, ghosted out against the Aston Martin DB10 and just at the back, behind the DB5 you can see his boss ‘M’ and that’s the concept that there are all of these objects laid out before her as she reminisces about their time in service together.

    There’s so much detail in the image from much earlier Bond films through to the current day, in the hope that the true Bond fans will absolutely love studying the piece and seeking out the references within it. It’s been great fun to re-engage, especially for me personally growing up with them and all of the quirky gadgets that you’d always love to see what ‘Q’ had come up with for Bond.

    There’s so much to spot, obviously it’s all about cars for me but there’s everything. You’ve got the Bond villains through to showcasing the Bond girls, there are some really obscure references that are all put together to give the piece some drama along with some subtle colouring because that was the idea to create an image that was really classy but that had some personality, with a nice concept behind it and one that the Bond fans will really love.

Biography

About Mark Davies:

Mixed Media British Artist Mark Davies was born in Bedfordshire in 1978 and studied Fine Art within the region with his early works being inspired by the compositional qualities of Piero Della Francesca and Giuseppe Arcimboldo whilst finding inspiration in the surrealism of Salvador Dali. Now living in St Neots Mark works full-time as a professional artist from his beautiful converted brick barn studio within the Cambridgeshire countryside.

Mark’s now signature ‘Storyteller’ collection showcases his ability to conceive and implement his own narrative to cherished fairytales and classic fictional stories to stunning effect. Inspired by the eloquence of Hans Christian Andersen and ingenuity of the Grimm Brothers, a whole host of much-loved stories have been turned on their head with each chapter being re-written as Mark embraces the often much more sinister plot and motives of the original authors that most don’t know exists as these classics are re-told to generation after generation.

As well as creating mesmerizing imagery full of detail there has always been a subtle and genuine moral quality to the work created to make you think a little deeper. Mark’s original works have created such a wonderful interaction between artist and audience as each searches out the detail and pieces together the plot with the hope that they can get an insight into Mark’s thinking whilst being encouraged to offer their own interpretation of what they see or often don’t see within the image. This genuine engagement has played a significant part in Mark’s gallery shows and appearances being so successful and truly special events.

As the body of work has grown so has Mark’s reputation for creating art with genuine meaning, art that stands on it’s own and that is driven by a fascinating multi-layered narrative like no other. His skill of storytelling has expanded across other areas including stage and screen as he delivers his signature style across a broad range of subjects and genres that continue to pull on the heart strings and embrace nostalgia and the memories that we all hold so fondly. In addition to building a solid gallery presence, Mark’s success has seen his work proudly displayed and selling within iconic venues that include the London Playhouse and Fortune Theatre within the iconic West End along with the highly respected Mall Galleries in London.
