Bristol based self-taught artist, Daniel Gardiner has an interesting creative mind able to explore both human inner reality and human environment. His work is deeply inspired by punk music and visual artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat and Kurt Schwitters. Adopting the innovations introduced by the Dadaists and Street Art, the artist proposes a new form of Primitivism, that takes shape through contemporary collages, drawings and assemblages. Determined to communicate his various views of the world, Daniel deals with the themes of mental health, climate change, injustices and present political issues.
Daniel's work has been shown in a variety of galleries in his home city of Bristol and with galleries in differentparts of the country plus Italy. His work has also been shown in a variety of online publications and magazines. His work resides with collectors in the USA, Germany and South Korea.
