Noah Davis dies at 32; L.A. painter and installation artist

Noah Davis, a Los Angeles painter and installation artist known for tension-filled scenes of isolated figures and for establishing the Underground Museum, an important artist-run space in Arlington Heights, has died. He was 32.

The artist, who became a significant art world presence over a short career — his work has appeared in institutional collections, and the Underground Museum recently established a unique curatorial partnership with L.A.'s Museum of Contemporary Art — died Saturday at home in Ojai, according to Sarah Stifler, a MOCA representative.
