“My works center on mid-century American architecture and design, once revered for their revolutionary ideas of form and social planning, but now vastly undervalued in a culture that craves change” , explains Danny.
What is interesting in his paintings is that one could almost confuse them with photographs. “Working in a realist style,” he adds, “my paintings capture those settings where mid-century modernism and surroundings come together seamlessly.
“I manipulate lighting, dramatic angles, and layout to form engaging scenes that showcase the dynamic elements of these spaces. Often focusing on modern suburban homes, classic cars, and home interiors, my work exposes this period of innovation to the general public, and especially to new generations.In doing so, I help to build a new respect for the past, to contribute to its preservation and to learn from it to move forward.
Danny’s work is currently featured in a group exhibition at George Billis gallery in Los Angeles. Urban landscape until July 22, 2018.
