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.
