Born in Yorkshire, England, Daniel’s artistic talents were noticed at an early age which earned him scholarships throughout his later years of education.
In 2002 a move to Southern Spain instigated his decision to start building a new life and to create his own individual techniques and visual arts.
Over the years Daniel’s artistic style has been through changes. Before his move to Spain, his passion for aerosol art and ‘spraying on walls’ was his chosen form for expressing his creative flare. Once relocated to Spain, he then changed his medium to acrylic and oil venturing into ab-stract and decorative in his earlier years, to more of a ‘pop art’ style around 2010. However, Daniel has spent years searching his mind for a special, uniquely themed collection that reaches to the viewer with meaning and words, whilst based on his own life experiences.
“As an artist I have searched to find a theme where I can build a visual consistency whilst pro-ducing thought provoking pieces. My new collection 'The Writing on the Wall' is exactly this, incorporating subtle techniques and ideas from over the past 15 years as an artist.
I’ve always thought of ‘walls’ as reflections on various aspects of our lives. Walls can be our protectors.
They keep us safe from the danger on the other side. We build imaginary walls in our thoughts to block out unwanted feelings. Walls can block out sight, things we don't want to see, sounds we don’t want to hear. History has seen the wall divide a country and separate families from their loved ones, confine the masses so the minority can gain strength. A wall embraces the very art we create so we can share it with others. We all have our own interpretation of what a 'wall' may mean to us”.
This collection is based around the many experiences of not only the artist himself, but an en-tire world. The faceless figures in the paintings are there to portray emotions and feeling through their body language, all adapting to the words written on their wall.
