Artist Statement DANIEL MEAKIN
As a child living near to Manchester, I enjoyed creating images through doodling, sketching and painting. During my three years undertaking my BA Honours degree, I observed shape, form, and contour within my urban surroundings, focusing on composition, light and texture. I enjoyed using various mediums, especially painting and textiles and found objects.
After completing my BA (Hons) I wanted to explore the urban landscape further. In 1998 I undertook my Master in European Fine Art in Barcelona, investigating the rich tapestry of its contemporary urban living, with its medieval and modernist architecture, fused with the colour and vibe of Mediterranean culture. The Master was completed with a successful exhibition in the historical English city of Winchester. I still live in Barcelona where I enjoy making commissions and exhibitions.
