The Urban Art Genre
The urban-art movement is heavily influenced by cityscapes and towns, and has some notable exponents including Nick Gentry and Tom Christopher. As with many genres of art, it started as an underground movement but has more recently become mainstream with exhibitions at prestigious galleries such as the Tate.
The Street Art Genre
Typified by icons such as Banksy and John Fekner, street-art has its roots out on the street. Graffiti art took a long while to reach into the public consciousness and much of that has been down to artists such as Banksy who have obtained international recognition. The influence of stencil masters such as ELK and C215 can be seen in Dan Pearce’s work today.
The Pop Art Genre
The pop-art genre has a longer history than some of the others, made popular in the late fifties and sixties by artists such as Andy Warhol. It draws as its inspiration modern culture and media and has created some of the truly symbolic and distinct paintings of the last couple of decades. The influence of all three of these genres is easy to see in Dan Pearce’s current work. Using iconic images and combining them with a range of different media and fine art techniques, the artist has developed a unique style of his own. His treatment of some of our most loved media heroes can appear quirky, bold and even irreverent but are always meaningful. You can see the work of Dan Pearce exhibited in galleries around the UK but you can now also buy originals and limited-edition prints online. He’s been exhibiting his paintings and developing his own unique style for the last 6 years, working from the art studio at the foot of his garden in London. Whether it’s using intricate stencils or combining brushed metal with resins, the effect is to create bold images that stand out on any wall.
