Over the last 20 years Daniel has earned recognition as a successful urban indigenous artist, with works going to discerning buyers throughout Australia, Dubai, Hong Kong, USA, France, Germany, Switzerland and Japan. Daniel has been commissioned by a number of major corporates for specific locations.
Daniel’s care and dedication to producing fine, detailed work allow him to create only a limited number of pieces each year.
Most elements of his work are intrinsically related to landscape where flora and fauna and ancient landforms provide his source of inspiration. His paintings show intricate mapping of a myriad of places and events in abstract form. His main influence comes from the shapes, colours and textures of the landscapes. The unique contrasting areas he has seen on his travels appear in his paintings – ranging from the stark red deserts of Western Australia to the rich ocean life surrounding Palm Island.
‘It humbles me in knowing that I have given some of my spirit to each artwork. I hope that my work gives people pleasure and a sense of peace in spirit as it gives me great peace in my heart to paint images of our untamed, uniquely contrasting but extremely beautiful country.’
