Brighouse based artist Roger Davies has had a very successful year so far. He has starred in a BBC TV series, been featured in the Yorkshire Post and has had three sell out shows in the Harrison Lord Gallery. His paintings are in hot demand.
Roger is looking forward to his next Art Show which starts on Saturday November 9th 2019 at the Harrison Lord Gallery in Brighouse.
The much loved Brighouse based singer/songwriter is now creating a stir in the art world. Roger went to art college before his singing career took centre stage for the last few years. Now he is bringing his art skills to the fore with this major exhibition of paintings.

Roger starred in the new BBC1 TV programme “Home is Where the Art Is”. We saw him produce a special painting for a family. Three artists pitch for a commission from a family to decorate their new house. In a knock out competition the family decide who will get the job.
A graduate of Batley School of Art and the recipient of the John James Hamer Award from the Huddersfield Art Society, Roger’s pictures are inspired by his songs and his experiences as a working musician.
Roger celebrates aspects of his hometown (Brighouse, West Yorkshire) in much of his work. Familiar scenes depict people, shop fronts, pubs and other buildings in a style which demonstrates a flair and enthusiasm for the subject which is uniquely his own.
His work also includes artwork inspired by Peter Brook, the late Pennine Landscape Painter whom Roger befriended after writing a song about the famous local artist.
Roger considers his music and artwork to be a real labour of love: “I like to draw and paint pictures which end up looking a bit like drawings, a bit like prints and a bit like paintings all at the same time. You could say the style is quite simplistic, almost childlike and I’d agree. The artwork, like my music, is ultimately celebratory and intended to inspire, inform and entertain.”
