Danny Abrahams is a totally self taught landscape artist. Born in Bradford in 1977, Danny took an interest in painting from an early age.
During his teens he discovered a love for music, becoming an accomplished musician, writing songs and playing guitar for the rock band 'The Hoover Dams'. He found moderate success with the band, gigging at venues all over the UK, appearing on TV and doing live performances on the radio.
On reaching his thirties, he found that his love for art was starting to take over, an while he still enjoys writing songs and performing, art has become the focal point of Danny's life. As a true Yorkshireman, Danny has been influenced by the local beauty of the northern landscape and has been inspired by his many travels during his career.
Danny has a love for the surrounding environment, finding beauty in everyday images. The sky is a powerful subject in Danny's work, it never ceases to amaze him, the overall beauty, emptiness, rawness and power of an everyday natural wonder that most of us take for granted.
Danny prefers working with oil on canvas, it favours his natural ability to capture the many 'moods' of the landscape and the magical 'skyscapes' that have become Danny's focal point. Inspiration for his work comes from everyday situations, whether it's from staring through the window on a cold wet evening or taking a stroll through the Dales on a Summers day. As he sits down in front of a bare canvas, he lets his creative mind take over, using vibrant colours to create amazing, magical landscapes.
