Biography

Danny O'Connor, born August 2nd 1981 (Liverpool), studied Graphic Arts at Liverpool John Moores Art School.

His work is a celebration of contrasts focusing mainly on portraits and figures with a prevalence of opposing artistic influences. His inspiration walks a tightrope between high and lowbrow sources as diverse as Comics, Illustration, Character Design, Tattoo Art and Graffiti to German Expressionism, Abstract Expressionism, Cubism, Futurism, Art Nouveau, Pre-Raphaelites, Modernism and Constructivism all pulled together to create hyper stylised and abstracted works. Contrasts play a big role in what he does; it's probably the most resounding feature throughout all of his work in one way or another. He likes to mix natural flowing lines with harsh diagonals. Clean crisp areas of colour with layered messy splashes of paint. He is trying to achieve something that appears both modern and futuristic whilst retaining a raw traditional aesthetic.

The paintings are built up layer upon layer of paint which gives the pieces great depth of field. They are created with an arsenal of tools that doesn't settle with convention.

Clean crisp areas of colour with layered messy splashes of paint. I'm trying to achieve something that appears both modern and almost futuristic whilst retaining a raw traditional aesthetic. The paintings are built up in layer upon layer of paint which give the pieces great depth of field. They are created with an arsenal of tools that doesn't settle with convention. As well as the more widely acknowledged paint and brush I use all manner of mediums, such as Correction Fluid, Spray Paint, Ink, Paint Markers, Texture Pastes, Charcoal, Graphite, Oil sticks and Collage. All applied in an equally diverse manner using brushes, fingers, paint rollers, sticks, paper and cardboard to drip, splash, spray, print and stroke the paint onto the surface."
