Make History

Malcolm Andre Davis II has a path that can be said is equal parts divine design  as it is devine intervention. Born to Malcolm & Norma Davis in Staten Island, N.Y., Malcolm's initial eposure to art came at an early age. His fundamental artistic training at easel side was organically supplemented by the inspiration that was the explosive street art scene of 1980's New York City. A natural talent with a unique eye on interpretaion would carry Davis' name into conversations surrounding the city's most promising young artists. 

In an instant, however, Davis' life would change. On a summer evening in June 2009, Malcolm would suffer from a head on collision with an unsuspecting taxi. Knocked unconscious, he would awake in in the middle of the street to the piercing blue dusking summer sky. This electrically charged color palette, coupled with his newlyl inspired appreciation for the beauty within the details of all the facets of llife, would subsequently guide his creative process for anything he would create from that moment on. "While rehabilitating from the injuries from the car accident, I did what I hadn't done in years: I created. But I created because I had to. There was nothing else I wanted to do. I wanted to create from a place that was true and honest and real. I needed to create like my life depended on it, because my life depended on it. The same way it did all those years back growing up in Staten Island." From breaking into his High School Art studio off hours to create, to Cooper Union, & most recently placed on the Huffington Post's artist watch list, "Black Artists: 30 Contemporary Art Makers Under 40 You Should Know", Davis' brilliance is unparalleled.
