Dan Pearce is a London based mixed media artist and digital designer who recently featured in London’s Shortlist magazine as one of the UK’s most collectable emerging artists.
Dan studied art at his local college on Merseyside which led to a (BA) Hons in Jewellery Design. Post Uni he returned to his original birth place of Australia and setup home in Sydney for the next seven years. It was here he honed his skills for digital design and fell in love with stencil art. Influenced by some of the stencil masters ELK and C215 he immersed himself into the world of hand cut stencils and spray paint.
Taking inspiration from street and pop art and juxtapositioning it with fine art, his work is bold and confident in style often completely transforming iconic portraits with his own inimitable style and blurring the lines between new media, pop and digital art. He uses a range of new and mixed media in his work from spray paint to hand painting, resins, stencils, collage and digital media.
2018 has seen an exciting new direction in subject matter, which explores the fragile nature of the world’s ecosystem, and the damaging impact mankind is having on our irreplaceable wildlife. “I’ve always enjoyed painting iconic portraits but for 2018 I wanted to set myself a new challenge. I am a huge wildlife fan and was really influenced by the environmental message of Blue Planet II which inspired me to create a new wildlife series, titled ‘Endangered’. I wanted to focus on the beauty of these animals whilst raising awareness for the Endangered Species."
Dan is married with two sons. He has built a studio at the bottom of his garden which allows him to juggle his busy life of artist, his digital design business and a hands-on Dad. Dan has been exhibiting his artwork since 2011 throughout the UK and internationally.
