Dan Joyce Art

I consider myself a transcendental painter, creating from my subconscious. All my work is about me. I know that sounds egotistical, but it isn’t; an artist captures what he/she knows. I do well when I take my time, but I find it more challenging to paint rapidly, capturing a subject or image’s raw emotional quality. I am also very prolific. Whether a painting, a poem, a song or a video, I do something creative everyday.

Inspirations:
Mental health, sobriety, existentialism, and world religions.
