Daniel Rosenthal, born and raised in New York City, paints in a range of styles. Much of his abstract work is boldly colorful and free flowing. These paintings are expressive and spontaneous. When the weather encourages, Daniel paints landscapes en plein air,? out at locations that typically exhibit a juxtaposition of the man-made and nature. Central Park is a particularly popular vantage point for the Manhattan-based artist.Some of Daniel’s work also belongs to the realm of surrealism; these paintings are ideas translated onto canvas, often having to do with the creative process itself. A self-taught painter, Daniel also has architectural training and work experience. The process of designing a building? from consideration of context to development of driving concepts to refinement of details ? informs the way he approaches his paintings, and his choice of subject matter.
