“Precision and chaos. Experimental details. Artistic labratory explorations - I find rich beauty in the paradox of art as a scientific expression at the intersection of humanity and observation: where imagination is brought to life.”


Growing up right outside New York City, Hermosa Beach based artist Dan Gardner was heavily influenced and inspired by the graffiti and skate culture. Using spray paint, acrylics, Inks and natural wood grains his work plays off the chaos of urban decay contrasted by the controlled linear landscape of a city. This satisfying balance shows in his passion for graffiti, nature, the ocean, and surfing as well as his engineering background. With many different styles and subject matters his work expresses his different passions and influences, bold, edgy organic pieces with movement depth and feeling.
