Tim Davies was born in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire in 1960. He studied Fine Art at Norwich School of Art and did an MA in Issues in Art & Architecture at the University for the Creative Arts in Canterbury.

He has worked in a range of media over the last 30 years, exhibiting and making work in Wales, the UK and internationally. He has received many awards, including the Mostyn Open prize, the Gold Medal in Fine Art at the National Eisteddfod and a major Creative Wales Award. He was the first European artist shortlisted for the Artes Mundi Visual Arts Prize and represented Wales in a solo show at the Venice Biennale in 2011.

The core of his work is rooted in working time- and site-specifically, using 2-and 3-dimensional and performative media. His recent practice is exploring the written, spoken and visualised word.
