His inimitable style is a product of his hypersensitivity and his nsatiable curiosity. Today, he plies his craft across numerous media. Whether digital, acrylic, film, ink or music, the constant for Daniel is a sort of pleasurable aggression, which is perhaps most apparent in is painting’s severe line work, natural drips and bold colours.
I work through a process of collection, documentation, and narrative. I selectively pick out images from a variety of personal photographs, found patterns, and magazine clippings from the 1940’s and 50’s. These facilitate a process of markmaking as they arematerially reduced, repeated, and recombined on paper using wax, lithography, and oil paint. I’m interested in the subvert reconstitution of imagery as they are developed into narrative forms within the scale of personal document.
I was born in 1980 in Poughkeepsie NY. Growing up I was heavily influenced by Graffiti and Hip-Hop, as well as Skateboarding and Comics. At 18 I headed south to NYC to attend the School Of Visual Arts. There I learned a variety of techniques in Painting, Photography and Print making, All the While keeping the freedom, efficiency and style I had acquired from graffiti. Today I reside in Brooklyn NY where I work, on Drawings, Paintings, Books, Murals, clothing, music, as well as curating shows and an occasional illustration or Album cover. My Work has been shown in a number of galleries both here and abroad, as well as featured in a variety of publications and art Collections.
