Danny Abrahams is a self-taught landscape artist, born in Bradford in 1977. A latecomer to the art world it was his girlfriend Danielle who bought him his first set of paints at the age of 32, to fill the void that had been left by no longer playing music in a band.
Art has now become the focal point of Danny’s life. As a true Yorkshire man, he is influenced by the local beauty of the northern landscape and has been inspired by his many travels during his previous career. Combining these images with memories of ‘growing up’ appeals to everyone with a soft spot for nostalgia. Before he found his love for art Danny had a love for music, becoming an accomplished musician, writing songs and playing the 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. Danny has a love for the surrounding environment, finding beauty in everyday images. The sky is a powerful subject in his work. The overall beauty, emptiness, rawness, and power of an everyday natural wonder that most of us take for granted, sets the backdrop for many of his works.
We are delighted to welcome Danny back to Redbrick on Sunday 9th December with a new collection of Original artwork and Limited Edition prints. Danny will be in the gallery from 1-4pm to sign and dedicate any purchases on the day.
