Hi Daniel, please introduce yourself
Residing in the city of Chicago, I’m an artist who enjoys painting in a bold, colorful, geometric and modern abstract style. My paintings are driven by emotion, inspired from architecture, circuitry, industrial factories, machinery and science fiction. The creative process is derived from contemplative thinking which helps create designs, patterns and shapes that form my paintings.
What are you doing besides making outstanding geometric art?
I’m an IT guy during the day and an artist at night. Eventually fulfilling my lifetime goal of transitioning into a full-time artist.
Please tell us something about your style
I’m an abstract geometric artist, focusing on hard-edge techniques. This is brought forth by my Graphic Design background, which has helped immensely in my venture of painting. I use acrylic markers and paint, tape and occasionally a flat-edge or palette knife. Most of my work starts out with minimal geometric shapes and complimentary colors, then I begin adding and layering more shapes until completion.
What are your artistic goals?
My goal is to become a full-time artist within the next 5 years or so.
And last but not least, what does being an artist mean to you?
Being an artist is a creative outlet for me and allows for me to express myself in a manner that cannot be explained.
