2018 has seen an exciting new direction in subject matter, which explores the fragile nature of the world’s ecosystem, and the damaging impact mankind is having on our irreplaceable wildlife.
“I’ve always enjoyed painting iconic portraits but for 2018 I wanted to set myself a new challenge. I am a huge wildlife fan and was really influenced by the environmental message of Blue Planet II which inspired me to create a new wildlife series, titled ‘Endangered’. I wanted to focus on the beauty of these animals whilst raising awareness for the Endangered Species.“
Staying true to his love of colour and mixed media, Dan Pearce’s iconic style is still evident in his new animal series, ‘Endangered’. Spray paint, aluminium, and resin – the key ingredients to a Dan Pearce original – are all still there, with the new addition of shattered glass and glass shards; a parody that tragically echoes the fragile future of these incredible animals.
