(United Kingdom 1972 -)
BiographyContemporary artist Dan Baldwin is at the forefront of the Young British Artist movement. Coming from the same abrasive, two-fingered salute school of peers Banksy, Tracey Emin and The Chapman Brothers, over the last decade he has quietly built a reputation to match. Today, Baldwin is an established figure in the art world, exhibiting globally.
Celebrity collectors include Bernie Ecclestone, Sir Ronald Cohen, Jake Chapman and Jo Whiley among others. Influential artists Damien Hirst, Gilbert & George and Peter Blake also collect Baldwin’s work and credit him as a key influencer of his generation. In addition, his work is found in prominent collections and institutions around the world.
“Looking at Dan’s work is like meeting old friends for me,” Sir Peter Blake once said. “It’s fascinating to see Mickey and all the chaps used in a newer different way.”
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.
He has since gone on to become one of the most prominent artists working in the UK today.
The multi-talented artist is a global favourite at the very pinnacle of the Young British Artists movement, and has previously exhibited with the likes of Damien Hirst, Banksy and Sir Peter Blake.
Dan Baldwin art has been shown around the world and the artist has enjoyed a stream of critically-acclaimed sell-out solo shows in London, Los Angeles and New York. He has also presented his work in art fairs in Basel, London, Miami, Tokyo and New York.
In addition to this, Baldwin’s artworks are constantly being featured in some of the world’s leading magazines. Publications including Vogue, Elle, The New Order, Art of England, Aesthetica, Dazed and Confused, Modern Painters and I.D have all featured his work.
