Men Making Moves in 2017: Artist, Danny

Artist, DANNY

Born and raised in Chicago’s west side area, this artist finds solace from the city’s hectic-ness by pushing himself to create. A pupil of oil, acrylic, water color, and the pen/pencil, Danny uses mixed media to share his voice.

He received his first pencil from his “glam-ma” at an early age and never put it down. Whether it’s wood burning and sculptures, or paintings and writings, Danny is helping shine positive light on his city and community. Although doing so may be hard to do, he reciprocates hope and encouragement between two local artists, Hebru Bentley and Darren Sanders, making it a lot easier. 

Influenced by artist Basquiat, Icon Kanye West, and his own daily experiences, Danny has become a passionate artist who has mastered the ability to transfer negative energy, still images, and broad concepts into something magnificent; what he calls Artistic Thoughts. 

With January 1st approaching, I had to complete the segment of Men Making Moves for this year. As I scrolled through my time line, I recognized the talents of this guy. He is able to bring anything to life with the stroke of his paint brush, and if you would like to witness the greatness, make sure you follow Danny on Instagram @QuickdrawX  and add him on Facebook D Qua Davis. Don’t forget to tell him JIMMY sent you.
