Victor Davson was born in 1948 in Georgetown, the capital of what was then British Guiana. Since immigrating to the United States in 1973, he has received a BFA degree from Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, New York; established himself in his practice as an artist; co-founded Aljira, a Center for Contemporary Art; and served as its founding director for 33 years.

His art practice is heavily influenced by the anti-colonial politics of the Caribbean, and by the intellectual powerhouses of that period, which include extraordinary writers, and activists like Martin Carter, Frantz Fanon and Walter Rodney.

He has exhibited widely throughout the northeast United States and has been included in exhibitions in England, France, the Dominican Republic and Cuba. His work is in the permanent collections of The National Museum of Fine Arts, Havana, Cuba, National Collection of Fine Arts, Guyana, the Newark Museum, The Montclair Art Museum, the New Jersey State Museum and the Morris Museum among others.
