Danny Starr é um artista autodidata baseado em Brooklyn, NY. Descobriu pela primeira vez o seu amor pela pintura enquanto se formarva como designer gráfico pelo Fort Lewis College.

I find great inspiration in the human form believing each gesture and pose tells a beautiful story. But humans are more than just their form. We are deeply complex, a lot of what we go through is intangible and I wanted to find how I could begin showing this on canvas. I started applying abstract techniques and began to weave the two practices together to find new ways of depicting the human experience. Abstract art is a great form of expression that helps depict, well, the abstract. When beginning a painting I start loose, creating chaotic strokes, splatters, and bleeds on the canvas. I then become more constructed as I form my subjects into their surroundings, developing and often combining them within the chaotic abstract scape.

Eu encontro grande inspiração na forma humana acreditando que cada gesto e pose conta uma bela história. Mas humanos são mais do que apenas sua forma. Somos profundamente complexos, muito do que passamos é intangível e eu queria descobrir como poderia começar a mostrar isso na tela. Comecei a aplicar técnicas abstratas e comecei a tecer as duas práticas para encontrar novas maneiras de descrever a experiência humana. A arte abstrata é uma ótima forma de expressão que ajuda a retratar, bem, o abstrato. Ao começar uma pintura, começo solto, criando traços caóticos, respingos e sangramentos na tela. Eu então me torno mais construído à medida que formo meus sujeitos em seus arredores, desenvolvendo-os e muitas vezes combinando-os dentro do cenário abstrato caótico.
