ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

A Fresh Perspective on Modern Art…making the most perfect imperfections, by Artist Dan Byl.  

Dan Byl was originally a Dentist, but was unsatisfied with his career. One day he started painting and could not stop.  He decided to quit dentistry and pursue his passion in art. He has been painting ever since! His art is known for 2 main things: 1.It’s size…it will definitely fill your living room wall, and 2. His ability to turn the most simple and normal object, such as a tree, a person, a boat…whatever the mind can conceive into an amazing abstraction full of rich colors and vibrant lines.

He opened his first gallery in Roswell GA, in 1996. In 1999 he went online and began selling paintings all over the world. Currently his paintings are in almost every state plus Australia, Israel, Canada, France, Spain, Italy, Russia, UAE, Cyprus, Ireland, The Netherlands, Finland, Switzerland, and the UK. His paintings have been featured in magazines, television shows and on CD's. They have also raised thousands of dollars for charity.

ARTIST STATEMENT

 Dan Byl graduated from the University of Michigan Dental School in 1983. In 1989 Dan began painting, and soon realized that he could not stop. He made a life decision to quit Dentistry and pursue his artistic career. Inspiration for his work is everywhere. There is not a day that goes by that Dan can’t turn a normal conception into a brilliant abstraction. His medium is Acrylic on canvas which allows him to work at lightning speed—Dan’s style of work is what he likes to call  a fresh perspective on modern art, as it takes you to another place where perfection disappears and interpretations are left for the viewer to discover.  

Dan focuses on turning every day life into something extraordinary. By using bright colors and abstract details he conveys perfect imperfections that are unlike anything else.
