Lives and works in Copenhagen.
OBRA is happy to present a solo exhibition with new paintings by Copenhagen-based artist Daniel Peder Askeland (b. 1985 in Jessheim, Norway). Daniel's enigmatic artistry has captivated the local and regional audiences and established himself as one of the most daring painters in the Öresund area. Since his art school days in Malmö (2009-2013), Askeland has engaged in a profound commitment to abstraction, taking inspiration from a wide range of material and ethereal encounters, at times dissonant nonetheless rhythmical and even contaminated moments of perception. The artist has talked about his work as “places and collisions I have in mind when I think of calmness or some kind of human recreation or reaction; an aesthetic machinery that develops as “natural abstraction” or “overgrown chaos”.
