Raised in St. Ives, Danny Fox’s first experience of art came from Wallis’ sprawling naïve depictions of local fishing boats skulking into the harbor.
The depiction of Fox’s characters is influenced by a variety of sources ranging from vintage Scotch Whiskey advertisements to Post-Impressionist painting to British East India Company portraiture.
Danny’s work is multi-layered and fascinating in myriad ways. It charts a coming of age, and a reckoning with the various mythologies – of the past, of family, of masculinity and of the self – that concern the artist himself. It is an investigation into those myths, and a deconstruction of them, in order to find a new way forward, and a purpose that has meaning. Interweaving animals and humans, portraits and street scenes, formality and dissonance, he delves into the complex experience of physical life and the journeys we send ourselves on.
Self-taught artist Danny Fox was born in St.Ives, Cornwall, UK, a seaside town made famous by its numerous artist residents.
