British artist Dan Baldwin bridges the gap between abstract and figurative painting to create a landscape that simultaneously reflects reality, the power of the imagination and the private, inner workings of his mind. His style has a unique aesthetic which is difficult to categorise. Working by instinct, it can change dramatically depending on the subject matter he is exploring and the emotions he is channelling. His integration of mixed media found objects over screen prints, acrylic and spray paint adds depth, clarity and balance. Despite the difference in medium, his creative process when working with ceramics is similar in its unabashed candour.
Dan was born in Manchester in 1972. He studied Communication Media at Eastbourne College of Art and Design, and received his BA in Communication Media and Illustration from Kent Institute of Art and Design, Maidstone. He lived in Brighton for twelve years and currently resides in the West Sussex countryside.
Baldwins superlative technique and conceptual brilliance position him at the forefront of the new Young British Artist movement. His work is internationally celebrated, championed and collected by an exclusive clientele, and he has exhibited his paintings, prints and ceramics around the world. He has enjoyed a stream of critically-lauded sell-out solo shows and set a record at Bonhams in February 2008 when his piece Apocalypse Wow The End of Everything sold for over £25,000. Publications featuring Baldwin and his work include Vogue, ELLE, I.D., Flair, The New Order, Art of England, Aesthetica, Style, Dazed and Confused, Modern Painters and Living Etc.

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.
In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.
After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.
We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.
Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.
In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.
The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.
Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.
After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.
For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.
As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
