- Full Description
In his artwork, contemporary surrealist Daniel Merriam presents an airy dreamworld of vaguely Victorian characters and architectural wonders. His paintings often seem lit from within but underlaid by an edgy darkness. Merriam (American, b.1963) grew up in a small Maine village in a household filled with music and creativity. He taught himself to paint at a young age, and later studied mechanical and architectural design before becoming an architectural illustrator. By age twenty-three he had given up a successful commercial art career to pursue his fine art dreams.
Merriam doesn't release a new calendar every year--the last one was for 2018, the one before that way back in 2014. So this is a special treat from one of our favorite fantasy artists. The colors and imagery are like nothing you've seen from any other fantastic artist. Merriam is one-of-a-kind.
He built his skills and portfolio with drawings and paintings fueled by fantasy and a romantic sensibility. In 2012 he opened Bubble Street Gallery—an emporium celebrating creativity and the imagination in Sausalito, California—where he and other steampunk-infused artists showcase their work. Merriam’s paintings have been exhibited across the United States, Europe, and the Middle East.
