Well, why don’t you visit the home of Australian artist Paul Davies?

This article recently popped up on my radar, and I was blown away not only by the art in Paul Davies small home, but that every piece of art is titled and credited within the article.   Bravo to Design Files!  That is a rare thing in home tours.    Here are a few images and words taken from the post.

Paul Davies is represented by Sophie Gannon Gallery in Melbourne and Olsen Irwin Gallery in Sydney.
