Daniel’s striking statement pieces demonstrate a profound social commentary on the popular culture of the early 21st century.

His evolution as an artist was far from conventional; having started life as a graffiti writer, he went on to study Graphic Design and Electronic Media, and gradually moved into the area of fine art where he has now built an enviable reputation. He has always experimented with different mediums and is currently exploring a combination of digital, acrylic, watercolour and ink.

His recent work features celebrities and icons past and present, but in his distinctive style which he describes as ‘controlled chaos’, he renders these familiar faces somehow unfamiliar. Daniel’s innovative and spontaneous approach brings something completely new to his moderninterpretations and sets his portraits apart from those of his contemporaries.

Daniel’s work has been exhibited and sold in London, the USA and Canada. Has worked on projects in collaboration with high profile brands such as Nike, BT, HTC and Universal. Curated a successful show at legendary London nightclub Fabric, which showcased 15 years of fabric artwork from artists including Goldie, Inkie, Carne Griffiths, Russell Marshall, Benjamin Murphy and more, with all proceeds going to CALM.
