"Dan lives and works in Brooklyn, New York with his wife, Katya Mezhibovskaya. His work focuses on themes of identity, media, culture, gender, consumption, and commerce. He takes wide varying approaches in style, and medium to construct new images and narratives. His studio is small, his cats don’t pay any rent. His wife likes knitting and designing books. His favorite place is the beach with a beer. A seagull pooped nearby once. Art is a relatively meaningless activity that brings him great joy and significant meaning. The existential chasms between individuals seem bridgeable via the arts and beer. Art is beer."
