Abrahams is a totally self-taught landscape artist. Born in
Bradford in 1977, Danny took an interest in sketching and
painting from an early age.
his teen years he discovered a love for music, becoming an
accomplished musician, writing songs and playing guitar for
the rock band 'The Hoover Dams'. He found moderate success
with the band, gigging at venues all over the UK, appearing
on TV and doing live performances on the radio.
reaching his thirties, he found that his love for art was
starting to take over, and while he still enjoys writing
songs and performing, art has become the focal point of
Danny's life. As a true Yorkshire man, Danny has been
influenced by the local beauty of the northern landscape and
been inspired by his many travels during his career.
has a love for the surrounding environment, finding beauty
in everyday 'images'. The sky is a powerful subject in
Danny's work, it never ceases to amaze him, the overall
beauty, emptiness, rawness and power of an everyday natural
wonder that most of us take for granted.
prefers working with oil on canvas. It favours his natural
ability to capture the many 'moods' of the landscape and the
magical 'skyscapes' that have become Danny's focal point.
Inspiration for his work comes from everyday situations,
whether it's from staring through the window on a cold and
wet evening, or taking a stroll through the Dales on a
summerís day. As he sits down in front of a bare canvas, he
lets his natural ability and creative mind take over, using
vibrant colours to create 'amazing and magical ' landscapes.
