Dan studied painting at the Kansas City Art Institute in 2006. He lives and works in Brooklyn, New York with his wife, Katya Mezhibovskaya.
Dan's work addresses themes of identity, media, culture, gender, and commerce. His series of non-sequitur watercolor and ink paintings explore found imagery and text. Objects, plants, and animals are presented with phrases that defy expectations. Dan often uses humor to examine social media avatars, human desire, and the advertising languages we use to market ourselves and products in all corners of the internet from Amazon to OkCupid. He lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
