British artist Dan Baldwin has won international critical praise for his provocative artwork, which – in his own words - is ‘about the fine line between the sinister and the beautiful.’ Dan Baldwin’s prints and canvases feature candy colour, butterflies and childhood cartoons amidst guns and razors - and this mixed media approach manages to inject a shot of realism into images which often seem otherworldly.
Dan Baldwin’s vibrant pieces are punctuated with darker motifs, a skull might look over a pastel perfect scene, blurring the divide between good and evil. These opposing combinations can shock viewers, but may also add a touch of humour, albeit dark. Dan Baldwin’s style has a unique aesthetic which is difficult to categorise. Working by instinct, it can change dramatically depending on the subject matter he is exploring and the emotions he is channelling.
Dan Baldwin studied Communication Media at Eastbourne College of Art and Design with commendation and received his BA (Hons) in Communication Media and Illustration from Kent Institute of Art and Design, Maidstone. Dan Baldwin has exhibited in galleries all over the world as well as at art fairs in Basel, Miami, LA, Tokyo, San Francisco, London and New York.
