Daniel’s paintings create a vocabulary of wildlife in a new dialect of urban industrial aesthetics. His language is a mixed media that includes mosses, dried flowers, sticks, stones and crushed cement juxtaposed with staggeringly beautiful and realistically rendered creatures. Placed on graffitied canvasses, with horizons made from tire tracks, Daniel paints deeply ambivalent depictions of the uneasy coexistence between urban expansion and animal habitat. He continues to find new ways to explore our increasingly false distinctions between natural and urban environments.
