Self taught, Brit artist Arth Daniels isn’t quite what you’d expect from a portrait artist. Having exhibited in some of the UK’s leading portrait galleries including the National Portrait Gallery throughout his early career his personal work is anything but traditional.
In 2007 Arth made it his personal goal to shift away from the generalised associations of portraiture, and to produce work that is honest, colourful and contemporary.
Painted from a mix of both live subjects and multimedia assemblage his work is an ode to portraitures ability to capture the expression, character and form of the subject without explicit use of the human face alone.
Inspired by Cinema, Make-up artistry and Visual F/X Arth’s body of work knowingly utilises his studies in photorealism to portray the grandeur of facial expression, identity and form whilst incorporating elements of humour along the way.
