Daniel Wall began drawing and painting at the age of 4. His first art teacher was his mother, a talented and diligent self-taught artist. Wall earned numerous art awards in his childhood and was accepted into a fine art academy when he reached his teens. He went on to study art in China, Italy, and the United States.
Wall’s artistic development was enhanced through his exposure to a variety of cultures and solidified through his extensive experience as an art instructor, illustrator, art editor, and fine art professor. He made a decision to become a professional artist after receiving his master’s degree from Georgia Southern University.
Daniel Wall now resides and paints in North Carolina in the United States. His paintings continue to be widely collected in the United States and around the world.
Wall describes his art as “Intense Impressionism,” and as a means of extending the Impressionist approaches made famous in the 19th Century into the 21st Century. He views his work as a reflection of contemporary times.
Influenced by the Impressionists, principally Monet, Pissarro, Sisley and Seurat, Wall has extended the concepts of the impressionists into a contemporary dialog. The idea of allowing the brush work to be fully evident, and even imbuing his pigment applications with an expressionist energy re-invigorates the impressionist style and has allowed Wall to find his own unique approach.
