Dan Parry-Jones

Dan trained at Winchester and Derby schools of art and started out working as an illustrator. Since focussing on painting in 2008 his style has evolved, drawing upon his love of collage, screenprinting and illustration.
Dan has taken part in several group exhibitions and in 2010 had his first solo show in Edgar Modern in Bath. He has also exhibited in venues across the UK, Europe, America and SE Asia. Danís paintings are all mixed media. The process involves working on wood , and building up layer upon layer of acrylic paint usually with a palette knife.
As the work progresses, Dan will often scrape off or paint over large areas in order to preserve or emphasise the most important part of the image. Finally, Dan uses silk screen printing when adding detail such as the figures or buildings. Dan uses varnish as a top layer in order to fix any loose flakes of paint or paper in place and also to age the piece; which creates a contrast with the generally contemporary feel of the work.
