Daniel Hicks (b. 1974, New York) currently works & resides in San Diego, Ca.
Self-taught, multidisciplinary artist and designer Daniel Hicks considers the breadth of his work to be a "protracted exercise in pure formalism as well as an ever-evolving engagement with the design process itself." Utilizing a range of materials (from found to fabricated), Daniel designs seemingly ordered, nonrepresentational compositions that are intentionally punctuated by minor structural alterations and subtle graphic irregularities. His insistence on reductive methods of creation, grid-based design principles, and a deliberately narrow color palette allow him to transmit a coherent visual language while navigating multiple avenues of expression.
