D.A.N.T.E. , originally from Somerset, followed his dreams and moved to the bright lights of London, a city that allows him to fully absorb the culture and people.
Being immersed in this environment inspires him to explore themes of urban life and contemporary culture in his extraordinarily expressive artwork. Inspired by 80’s New York artists Basquiat and Keith Haring, D.A.N.T.E. Combines his life experiences and 80’s cartoons, such as Transformers and He-man, to create his figurative works, paying homage to the freedom and spontaneity of childlike expression.
