Daniël van Nes

The multi-disciplinary work of Dutch artist Daniël van Nes illuminates an undefined world that may be waiting for us in the future or for some already exist in the present. Heaven or hell, you can decide, while frightening and mysterious it is also tempting and compelling. A parallel universe that once observed slowly but surely creeps into our minds, contaminating everything it touches like a greasy black stain. His is an opera-noir world populated with lost and lonely creatures constantly driven by their own fears and desires. With his wood engravings and engraved light objects Daniël sets classic engraving into a completely new and modern perspective.

Daniël was born in 1972, in Terneuzen, the Netherlands . From a young age he attended classes at academies and art schools. After studying graphic design, he continued to study graphic arts at the Royal Academy of Arts in Antwerp , Belgium and got familiar with couture. In 2003 Daniël was nominated for Dutch Artist of the Year.
