About the Artist

Although the style of Daniel Carver’s (Dano) work varies, his approach is always the same.

About the Artist

Although the style of Daniel Carver’s (Dano) work varies, his approach is always the same. He begins by identifying a subject through which he can explore saturated, vibrant colors and rich, contrasting textures. Dano is inspired by the beauty that can be found in the degradation of man-made materials, the peeling paint from a wall or the oxidation of metal in an old truck. With each painting, he allows the subject to dictate the style in which it is to be painted.

Dano has had an unquenchable passion for all forms of art since childhood. But most recently, his medium of choice has been acrylic paint. The color is brilliant and long-lasting, and the substance itself acts like glue, allowing him to layer paper or collage. He builds up several layers of paint and paper, and then distresses them with abrasive instruments. Each creative choice enhances the realism of his paintings.
