“British artist Dan Baldwin was born in Manchester in 1972.

He studied at Eastbourne College of art with commendation and received his BA with Honours from Kent Institute of Art and Design 1990-1996, where he was invited to be studio associate.

Dan Baldwin has exhibited his art around the world and has enjoyed a stream of critically accaimed sell out solo shows in London, Los Angeles and New York. He has presented his work in art fairs in Basel, London, Miami, Tokyo and New York. Select publications featuring his work have included Vogue, Elle, The New Order, Art of England, Aesthetica, Dazed and Confused, Modern Painters and I.D.

A contemporary painter, his unique style is often described as allegorical and dreamlike, often dealing with topics from life and death, innocence, symbolism, nostalgia and memory. His practice has incorporated ceramic pots and ceramic tile paintings, bronze sculpture editions and the art of printmaking, mainly silkscreen and etching.

Through multiple stages of reworking and layering ,each canvas becomes taut and explosive. Mimicking punk, acid trips and pop art when viewing his work you are prepared for a full rush of anarchistic free play but in fact what you get is something much more nuanced, restrained and poetic – the rush is contained. His main objective is to achieive balance and harmony between each image and colour.

Baldwin has always been an avid collector of vintage books, photography, toys and real found objects which he incorporates into his work. He uses 3D objects on his canvas, has cast them in clay to use on his ceramics and has used them to create his bronze editions.

He has donated his art to great success to support numerous charities since 2004 including Teenage Cancer Trust, Teen Cancer America, British Heart Foundation and Peace One Day.

He is in the permanent collections of the Groucho Club, Cafe Royal and House of St Barnabas, Damien Hirst, Sir Ronald Cohen and Jake Chapman.”

“Looking at Dan’s work is like meeting old friends for me. It looks as though at some point in our careers we used the same casting agency. I am flattered that Dan writes that he was influenced by my work. It’s fascinating to see Mickey and all the chaps used in a newer different way, and I have really enjoyed his work.” Sir Peter Blake.
