Daniel Loveday

Based in United Kingdom
I think of myself as a storyteller as much as an artist. My concerns for the environment are reflected in my surreal and symbolic paintings. At the same time I experiment with techniques in the form of abstracts. I trained for two years at foundation level, doing life drawing and print and then I began a degree at Exeter Art College. After which I became a graphic designer during which time I did a lot of commercial art, usually illustrating everything from wildlife in a park, to steam trains, to cartoon characters. I was a nursing auxiliary at The Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital. I encounter all sorts of people who themselves are going on journeys. It fascinated me how they deatl with that journey. Many suffered from dementia, others were facing the end of their lives with dignity, their life choices are somewhere between joyful and impossibly sad. I want to record all that and represent it. I have now become a full time artist since March 2017 when I left the hospital. I feel it’s my task to speak about environmental and social issues in my paintings. The human race is a paradox that can understand so much but can’t stop itself from wholesale destruction. I’m interested in beauty, the beauty of self realisation, of understanding, of awareness. The beauty of things we can’t fathom, of darkness and finding the light, of finding that moment when we do understand and can find love. I'l use any medium. Oil. Water soluble crayons. Acrylic. Canvas. Board. Paper... and even the stage!
