This piece uses cardboard as surface. It was a very spontaneous painting. I then glued the cardboard (an open cardboard box) to a plywood surface. Its wood structure allows it to be hung. It has a industrial feeling to it and it seems to be floating on the wall. It is coated with water-based resin.

Daniel’s work draws on a contemporary naive aesthetic reminiscent of the great Jean-Michel Basquiat. Inspired by street art and neo-expressionism, Daniel deliberately strives for a childlike quality in his figures and shapes. He sketches drafts of his paintings first on an iPad. “Then I go to the canvas or cardboard, a material that I like a lot,” Daniel says. “I love the texture it gives to the work.” Through the use of everyday materials including flattened cardboard boxes, barcodes from old labels, and masking tape, the work is given an assembled quality made popular by contemporary American artists in the 1960s.
