ARTIST STATEMENT

In my art, I draw from the rich traditions of impressionism and pointillism, infusing my work with vibrant colors and a unique approach. I sculpt the canvas to blend the realms of painting and sculpture, aiming to evoke shared human experiences and cherished memories through my portraits, landscapes, and cityscapes. This multidimensional approach allows me to create visually engaging and tactile artworks, inviting viewers to experience my work on multiple sensory levels.

ARTIST BIO

Daniel Curran is an Atlanta-based visual artist whose passion for texture and vibrant colors is evident in his body of work. Daniel began his artistic journey as an apprentice on the island of Kauai, Hawaii, where he studied landscape painting and laid the foundation for his career. He later continued his education in art and earned a BFA from the Atlanta College of Art.

 

Drawing inspiration from the great impressionist painters and armed with a background in painting and sculpture, Daniel has developed a unique approach to his craft. Central to his creative process is a brilliant fusion of sculpture and painting, resulting in canvases adorned with strikingly textured surfaces.

 

Beyond traditional art, Daniel has ventured into digital art, securing commissions from prominent brands like the Atlanta Braves and Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer. His work has also been featured in various publications, such as Living Magazine, Shout Out Atlanta, and Canvas Rebel Magazine.

 

Daniels art can be found in various art venues throughout the city. He participates in group shows, live events, regional art markets and public art projects, connecting with the local community. He currently resides in Atlanta, diligently creating new work in his home studio.
