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.
