Art by Malcolm Davies
I studied art at school in the early 1970's and my early paintings were all aircraft based. As my interests changed I moved on to motor cycles and then to cars.
My first commission was gained in 1978 and was for a Jensen CV8. In the years since this first commission, my artwork has gone all-round the world and has covered many of the major marques, from modern to vintage.
Through a commission completed for a local accountant I became involved with the UK Ferrari owners club in 1982. A large amount of work has come from owners since then and my work has also appeared in their club magazine and in an Italian originated magazine called Ferrari World in the late 80's early 90's.
I have also completed many works for the GB Porsche Owners club members since the late 90's.
In the last few years an I have received commissions on non car related subjects, including trams, buses, trolleybuses, maritime and more recently rail based subjects.
In October 2019 I was successful in my application to became an Associate Member of the Guild of Railway Artists. My artwork was judged by a group of my peers as of a sufficiently high standard to be admitted to the Guild.
In January 2021 I became an Associate Member of the Guild of Motoring Artists.
