Dan Perfect

Dan Perfect is an acclaimed British painter whose luminous abstract work fuses elements from the organic, urban and digital realms to create imaginary universes using complex brush-strokes and nuanced hues.   Perfect’s works create an amalgam from memories of books, films, video games and music, reflecting his desire to find some representation of, and solutions to, the question of who we are, where we come from and where we might be going.  The resulting images are like dense forests; signs, rhythmic and layered, suggest the tangled undergrowth of the natural world or the myriad life forms floating under a microscope.

Dan Perfect obtained a BA in Fine Art from Saint Martin’s School of Art in London and a DATEC in Art and Design from Chelsea School of Art.   He also attended Central Saint Martins, where he studied postgraduate printmaking.  He lives and works in London.

Perfect has exhibited in galleries and museums internationally in the UK, USA, Australia and Czech Republic. He has had solo exhibitions at Rochester Art Gallery (2015); Nottingham Castle Museum & Art Gallery, Nottingham and Southampton City Art Gallery, Southampton (with Fiona Rae, 2014); Karsten Schubert, London (2010); Road Agent, Dallas, USA; One in the Other, London and Chisenhale Gallery, London (2008).  Group exhibitions include Psychotropics, New Art Centre, Wiltshire, curated by Iwona Blazwick (2020); Royal Academy Summer Exhibitions (2019-20 and 2015-17); Malevolent Eldritch Shrieking, AttercliffeTM, Sheffield (2018); Turn the Colour Down!, Turps Gallery, London (2016), curated by Biggs & Collings; John Moores Painting Prize, Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool (2012); Newspeak: British Art Now, Saatchi Gallery in London and Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide, Australia (2010-11).
