Dan Baldwin (UK)

Dan Baldwin’s career in recent years has begun to emerge from the shadows of the more loudly celebrated Y.B.A’s such as Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin. Born in Manchester in 1972, he studied Communication Design and Illustration, which he practiced in Brighton in the 1990′s. He currently lives in a 17th century house in the West Sussex countryside, where he makes his artwork.

Baldwin’s art is distinguished by it’s compelling fusion of time-honored themes of introspection, fantasy, innocence and mortality and contemporary use of media imagery, digital printing and street art. Also distinctive is his nostalgic preoccupation with images from children’s book illustrations by Lewis Carroll, Beatrix Potter and their ilk, his use of narratively decorated ceramics and a pervasive dark, quirky humour. These serve to position Baldwin in a fertile space in British art between the familiarly historical and the contemporary present.

Baldwin’s paintings, multimedia prints and ceramics have been shown in Britain, and increasingly internationally, in solo and group exhibitions, from which he continues to garner both critical acclaim and market popularity.
