LONDON.- For the first time rare paintings from recently deceased artist John Davies will be exhibited at Idea Generation Gallery from 3rd - 8th October. Roger Daltry and Pete Townsend of The Who commissioned the stand alone works for the book ‘A Decade of the Who'. These works have never been available to see in the flesh before. Also exhibiting will be prolific photographer Bernie Walters, with unseen images of The Who.

John was commissioned by Roger Daltrey and Pete Townsend to produce images for a book detailing the first ten years of THE WHO entitled 'A Decade of the WHO'.

John was tragically killed in a car crash in 2006 and left all of his work to his friend. These startling vivid images are a testament to the talent of Davis and to THE WHO, as he was inspired to create his first local exhibition of paintings based around Pete Townsend's aural images from 'Tommy'.

It was at this exhibition that John met Roger Daltrey and subsequently Pete Townsend, who, mutually inspired by his visual interpretations of their work, commissioned him to produce these fantastic images.

Now for the first time these 45 historic paintings are to be exhibited as one, with a subsequent auction so that fans of both John's and THE WHO's work can own and admire these works of art.

The images on the left can never truly convey the detail and color of John Davis' exceptional imagery and so The Fame Bureau urge interested parties to attend the previews.
