Born in Manchester in 1972, Dan Baldwin initially studied at Eastbourne College of Art before completing a BA in Illustration from the Kent Institute of Art and Design in 1990-1996, where he was invited to be studio associate.
Art is at its best when it evokes passionate feelings and creates controversy, and Baldwin’s art is particularly explosive. Reoccurring topics include life and death, innocence, nostalgia and memory.
Baldwin uses mixed media to create work that is layered both thematically and physically. His practice has incorporated ceramic pots and ceramic tile paintings, bronze sculpture editions and the art of printmaking, mainly silkscreen and etching.
