Born August 2nd 1981, Danny O’Connor is an artist from Liverpool UK and 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. Walking 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 in O’Conner’s work. He likes to mix natural flowing lines with harsh diagonals. Clean crisp areas of colour with layered messy splashes of paint.
