Danny O'Connor

Danny O'Connor born August 2nd 1981, is an artist from Liverpoo, he studied Graphic Arts at Liverpool John Moores Art School.

His work is a celebration of contrasts focusing mainly on portraits and figures with a prevalence of opposing artistic influences. His 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, The Pre-Raphaelites, Modernism and Constructivism all pulled together to create hyper stylised and abstracted works.

Contrasts play a big role in what he does, it is one of the most resounding features throughout all of his work in one way or another. He enjoys mixing natural flowing lines with harsh diagonals. Clean crisp areas of colour with layered messy splashes of paint. He aims to achieve something that appears both modern and almost futuristic whilst retaining a raw traditional aesthetic.
