THE URBAN JUNGLE – SOLO SHOW
Friday 12th – 18th October
Private View 12th October 6pm-8pm
at CLOUD GALLERY, BRIGHTON
2018 has seen an exciting new direction in subject matter, which explores the fragile nature of the world’s ecosystem, and the damaging impact mankind is having on our irreplaceable wildlife.
THE URBAN JUNGLE will be an extension to Dan’s Endangered series. Dan is fresh from a recent trip to New York and was busy photographing lots of street and urban environments. This sparked an idea to combine his endangered animal style with his photography. The smashed glass is still evident and some new materials will also be introduced.
“I’ve always enjoyed painting iconic portraits but for 2018 I wanted to set myself a new challenge. I am a huge wildlife fan and was really influenced by the environmental message of Blue Planet II which inspired me to create a new endangered wildlife series. I wanted to focus on the beauty of these animals whilst raising awareness for the Endangered Species.”
Dan Pearce is a contemporary mixed media artist, his works take inspiration from street and pop art and juxtaposing it with fine art,
his work is bold and confident in style often completely transforming iconic portraits with his own inimitable style and blurring lines between new media, pop and digital art.
“One of the UK’s most collectable emerging artists”
