Danny Brown is a first-generation American artist born in Los Angeles. Danny Brown’s artworks allocate an intrinsic connection between himself and the diverse communities occupying Los Angeles. Through his experience with graffiti, Brown became fluent in the use of color blocking and translating rougher imagery into something vibrant. The subculture of street art and encouragement through school programs led him to pursue his personal creative practice as a career.
Brown’s art coalesces youth culture, art history, fashion, and American consumerism and melds them all to create his unique style. Drawing on his background in fashion and a keen eye for color, design, and culture, he creates pieces that are both visually striking and deeply meaningful. Brown has quickly become one of the most sought-after urban artists working today. His works have been exhibited at prestigious galleries and museums around the country, including MoMA PS1 in New York City, where he has gained a following among curators, critics, and collectors alike.
