About the artist
A bold colourist with a strong sense of geometry Dan typically portrays cityscapes where day and night seem to merge and where you can’t be sure if the light is natural or artificial. Though there is hardly a human figure to be seen in these paintings, the colours are warm, and the stark city environment is often suffused with a bold, vivid cheerfulness. A prize winning graduate of the Slade School of Fine Art, where he was awarded the William Coldstream Prize and Henry Tonks Medal, his work has been exhibited frequently in London, New York and Cornwall. He was recently artist-in-residence at Kensington Palace and at Level 39, Canary Wharf, London.
