Description

Danny Heller nos muestra, en una vista panorámica, una de esas casas modernas que pretendían poner al alcance de la clase media-alta una nueva arquitectura que rompía con el pasado. La radical vivienda fue diseñada por el arquitecto William Krisel para el constructor Bob Alexander, responsable con su padre de gran parte del desarrollo urbanístico de Palm Springs en los años cincuenta, y fue bautizada por una revista como “La Casa del Mañana”. Posteriormente tuvo sus “cinco minutos de fama” cuando Elvis Presley alquila la mansión en 1967 antes de su boda con Priscilla Presley. Desde entonces a la casa se la conoce como el “escondite de luna de miel de Elvis”, Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway y es otro de los atractivos turísticos de Palm Springs.

DANNY HELLER (Northridge, California, USA, 1982)

Heller earned a BA in Art, with an emphasis in painting and collage, from the University of California, Santa Barbara.

He has exhibited at major galleries and museums in the United States, including the George Billis Gallery (New York and Los Angeles) and the Laguna Art Museum, and his work has been featured in prestigious journals such as Juxtapoz, American Art Collector, LA Weekly and the Spanish publication Arquitectura y diseño.

Having grown up in Los Angeles, where designer homes and cars abound, his work has gradually centred on mid-century American imagery, especially architecture.

Heller’s work displays an almost photographic realism and obsessive love of detail, proving beyond a doubt his talent for capturing the California colours, light and air as well as the most iconic shadows and corners of Los Angeles’s dark side.

Many of his pieces have made their way into prestigious collections, including those of the Long Beach Museum of Art, the Palm Springs Architecture and Design Center, and Fondation Colas in Paris.
