About Danny


Danny O’Connor is an artist living and working in Liverpool, UK. He studied Graphic Arts at Liverpool John Moores Art School.

Danny explains his work by saying, “My work is a celebration of contrasts focusing mainly on portraits and figures with a prevalence of opposing artistic influences. My inspiration walks a tightrope between high and lowbrow sources as diverse as Comics, Illustration, Character Design, Tattoo art and Graffiti to Abstract Expressionism, Cubism, Futurism, Art Noveau, Modernism and Constructivism all pulled together to create hyper stylised and abstracted works. Contrasts play a big role in what I do, it’s probably the most resounding feature throughout all of my work in one way or another. I like to mix natural flowing lines with harsh diagonals. 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.”

I love his work i only own three of his pieces so far. But i do intend to buy more in the future.

I have been working in oil and watercolor. Am just starting to use fluid acrylic. Found your page in researching use of fluid Acrylics. Love your work. I see you use many materials. Do you use fluid acrylics widely in tour work?

I love your work!!! I didn't u understand it at first, however I still appreciated it because of the vibrant color and diversity it portrayed. I hope to see more from you in the future. I love it!!
