Ronald Davis is an American painter who describes himself as a Geometrician and abstract Illusionist.

Davis was born in Santa Monica in 1937. He grew up in Cheyenne, Wyoming and found his calling as a painter in 1959 at the age of 22. Davis studied painting at the San Francisco Art Institute, 1960-64, and lived, worked and exhibited his art in the Los Angeles area until he moved to Taos in 1990. He lives on the Hondo Mesa in a complex of six living and studio buildings, the designs based upon the Navajo dwelling hogan, and built in collaboration with architect Dennis Holloway and anthropologist Charley Cambridge.
