Daniel Wang

Daniel Wang is a self-taught artist whose current practice explores the intersection of consumerism and identity. Wang is less interested in the stories we illustrate through visual modes like film and television than he is in the stories we take for granted: the subtext that shapes us on and off the camera (and canvas). Often replacing or removing backgrounds altogether to highlight his subjects (while stylizing them heavily with dry and wet mediums), Wang recontextualizes familiar imagery like Hollywood starlets and 90s NBA players to challenge established narratives and complicate our perceptions of representation.
