Daniel Mackie

This collection of art cards and prints started out live with the lose theme, “animals in their natural habitat”. As you can see, the creatures environment ended up inside the animal. Daniel took his inspiration from an unlikely source, navy tattoos! In order for the paintings to work with so much detail, the shape of the animal was key in the design, it had to be instantly recognisable as the creature it represented, here Daniel took his cue from Art Deco, keeping the shape of the animal  as simple as possible.  Daniel is a big fan of the printmakers of the Ukiyo-e period which was between the 17th and the 20th centuries. This has very much influenced the interior of the designs. – check out his work @ http://www.thedmcollection.com/
