The Atmospheric Images of Andrew Davidson

Today, I would like to introduce you to an artist I admire by the name of Andrew Davidson. There is not a great deal of information available about Davidson because he has not conducted many interviews, but like all great artists, his work mainly speaks for itself.

Death on the Nile by Andrew Davidson

Davidson studied graphic design, and considers himself both an illustrator and designer. His eye for design is apparent when studying the composition of his illustrations. He uses gouache paint to lay down large blocks of color, but being multi-talented, he also creates wood carvings and wood engravings.

Davidson came to my attention when I noticed his artwork in the Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot books for The Folio Society. As a fan of Agatha Christie, I think he really captured the atmosphere and elegance present in Christie’s books. I love his use of color and minimalist design; they provide a great deal of context and narrative despite their minimalist aesthetic.

Davidson’s images are reminiscent of the beautiful travel posters created by artists during the 1920s and 1930s.
