Dan Rawlings is a contemporary British artist born in Watford in 1979, he grew up in Essex and currently lives and works in Gloucestershire. A sympathy for unloved and forgotten relics and a fascination with nature’s resilience have inspired him to create visions of a world where man’s impact is being slowly reclaimed by nature. Dan is probably best know for his manipulation of metal and light, conceived with intricate hand-plasma cutting.
His signature works cut from vintage hand saws and street signage can be found in collections around the world. Recently he has been introducing sign painting and motion to his works. One of these stunning pieces was featured in StolenSpace’s ‘Postcards of 2020 Group Show’, with Rawlings aptly choosing a ‘Stop’ sign to manipulate and mark the end of 2020.
