BARRIE J DAVIES: Born In Milford Haven Pembrokeshire Wales 10th of September 1977
The work of Barrie J Davies ranges from the use of various media playing with meanings, images, objects and texts to create possible new fictions and reality to reassess the world and space around us through the guise of language and displacement. Humour is the catalyst in which is manipulated to help guide the work to possible understandings.

Once upon a time there was an conceptual artist born in ye old Pembroke's hire, Wales, called Barrie J Davies.
Barrie J Davies was born in Milford Haven, Pembroke's hire, Wales in 1977. He has graduated from Southampton institute with a fine art degree in 2000 and completed his masters Degree in 2004. Barrie J Davies' artwork has taken many forms such as painting, drawing, sculpture, print making, installation, mail art, video, film, performance artwork, events, music, Internet artwork and other conceptually designed products such as T - Shirts, badges, golf balls, mouse mats and baseball caps.
His first solo exhibition called worlds most wanted which was in a community centre in Hartford west in Pembroke shire in 1998 which Barrie hired out for the small fee of thirty five pounds. This contained some his early work and had a grand attendance of 12 people.
His work has explored mobile phone technology in 2005 for an exhibition in Liverpool at the arena gallery, in which Barrie created the world's longest cup and string telephone and tested it out on the streets of Liverpool, after which it was installed in the gallery.
He has shown in an exhibition in 2005 the most boring video ever in Istanbul, Turkey in which for video the word boring lasts for eight and half minutes.
Also to explore the idea of something and nothingness, he has also founded in 2004 the world's first museum of nothingness in a briefcase in which he invites the public to send him object's) that they think represent the idea of nothing or nothingness. The museum of nothingness is also an ongoing work.
His fun colourful painting work contain word and text jokes, riddles and secret messages of fun, humour and irony set to entertain and baffle the viewer to explore possible new truths and fake realities.
His cheap Bic Biro on paper drawings are a joy to look at and are fast and hasty grabbing a funny idea in putting it down in the fast whit of a stand up comedian.
He has organised an art pub crawl in 2005 called on the piss designed as a focus for getting people together to talk about art and ideas while going out for a night around the pubs in Cardiff. Documentation of this event was posted on his website and for the people that came along they were each given a limited edition badge which said on the piss with Barrie J Davies.
For an exhibition in 2005 in a gallery in Huston in London Barrie set to meet everyone who came to the exhibition that he was part of. He did this in a performance art way by shaking hands of everyone who came in while holding a sign which said the hello on it and he also gave them a badge which read I met the artist Barrie J Davies an he gave me this badge. This act of saying Hello lasted until the limited edition of one hundred badges which he was giving out ran out.
Another one of his projects was to introduce the Unlimited Print which is an unlimited edition, ink on A4 paper print (2004), which is available to download free from his website as a word document.
Barrie has also curated his own exhibitions the first which was held in 2005 in the bathroom of his flat called all washed up which consisted of selected artists from Wales and England. The second exhibition in 2006 which Barrie has curated was called The couch trip. This exhibition was purely video and film art. This exhibition happened again in his flat in which video art was shown on his domestic television set in his living room. This exhibition had a lot of response from all over Europe, London, Birmingham, Neath and Cambrian.
One his recent projects of the artist Barrie J Davies have involved The Barrie J Davies Ultimate Crap Music Album. This limited edition signed album is sonic art equivalent of his visual and performance based artwork. This album he has exhibited in an exhibition in Poole in Dorset called "unsafe" in 2006 and sold on eBay to help fund his other art projects. This album was made a quickly as possible on a home computer and is released on Barrie's own home tape recordings label. As Christmas shopping was looming near in 2006, for an exhibition at Tactile Bosch art space in Cardiff called where we're @, Barrie J Davies exhibited his own brand of interactive car boot sale art stall to help raise some funds for his Christmas shopping and to help clear out some of the work from his studio, this work he called The Barrie J Davies Car Boot Sale Art Shop. It sold paintings, drawings, sculptures, compact discs, DVD videos, green gold balls, and much more, but all signed and dated as original work by the artist Barrie J Davies.
What's more a hardback book of the artwork of Barrie J Davies is also available called Subesque available from Publishers Editions Martin.
The artwork of Barrie J Davies explores the funny and the stupid things of life that make us laugh or get in the way or just get on our nerves or even make us fall over; they are always completely off the wall.
