Damien Davis (b. 1984) is a Brooklyn-based artist. His practice explores historical representations of blackness by seeking to unpack the visual language of various cultures and question how these societies code and decode representations of race through design and digital modes of production. Working primarily in laser-cut acrylic, Damien draws on his vast store of Black iconography to configure three-dimensional kinetic collages that invite viewer participation.
