DVANDE Art Exhibit

reporter: Miguel Dominguez

On May 3rd at the Keyes Art Projects, located at 551 West 21st Street, 4th Floor, the 2012 exhibition of Daniel V. Anderson ("DVANDE") art work took place. It was a nice affair, with rather important people in the art world and the movie industry attending.

Born in 1979, DVANDE has redefined the concept of “mixed media” by taking the ideas of motion and energy to a new grade. His very three dimensional mixed media artwork incorporates color, form, motion and energy. He creates unique textures and visually arresting abstracts. His work has been described as "hanging sculptures." He creates a great deal of privately commissioned works, which have generated interest from many art and media outlets. His art is most often featured at exhibits sponsored by Black Tie magazine. At Syracuse University he earned a degree in Fine Arts. He also studied painting in Florence, Italy at the Piazza del Arte.
