Hugh Davis, born 1985, is a Melbourne based artist whose work deals with a personal relationship and respect for technology that simultaneously disregards technology’s perceived aura. In 2002 he formed the Dirty Mits, a Punk band that would last five years and tour internationally. In creating the group’s persona and imagery, Hugh honed a DIY ethic to image and sound creation that would extend into his approach towards media, technology and the arts. He completed a BA (Multimedia) with honours in 2005 and explored community radio, television, animation, publishing, music and design before focusing on his artistic practice in 2008. In 2011, Hugh completed the Master of Visual Arts at the VCA.
