Dan started his muralist career by painting murals during his first year of Art school in Blenheim in 1995 when he worked on a community project called 'Murals for Marlborough' under the guidance of two professional artists.
This laid the foundation for Dan to branch out on his own mural projects, which he continues to do today. In 1996 he undertook a number of mural projects in Lower Hutt and created volunteer pieces for Rainforest action groups that led to some murals at the HQ of the World Wildlife Fund. After further learning - a Diploma with Honours at The Learning Connection in Wellington - he co-founded Taniwha Murals, which specialised in working in schools, before heading overseas for three years.
Upon his return home to Wellington he created a new mural style that he continues to develop. The style is focused on careful research and design, ensuring it is locally relevant and educational.
Dan has used Resene throughout his work in New Zealand and comments that "the paint sticks to anything, it's really versatile and dries quickly, and the primers are easy to use too. The pigments in the colours are strong, I've come to rely on them, and for example I know I can paint yellow or white over black. I almost always use Resene Uracryl 403 as a varnish".
A wide range of artists are using Resene paints in their work, on everything from interior paintings to tactile artworks and mural masterpieces.
