Danny Minnick (b. 1983) is a multi-faceted, fast-rising American artist born in Seattle, Washington. His abstract expressionist style is often juxtaposed to the works of Jean-Michel Basquait and reminiscent of the humanity in Keith Haring’s works, with his own humorous disposition and sensibility. As such, these elements often nuance his paintings that use layers of oil and spray paints to bring form to what might seem at first a riot of colours in the form of brush work, splatter work, fragments and splinters.
Danny’s first successful show, Break the Walls, at Boîte Noire Gallery in the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles, paved the way for his expansion into the fine art world, following his skateboarding injury which prohibited him from pursuing the sport professionally. Since then, he has held 5 other solo exhibitions within the United States and around Europe.
Minnick’s works are collected by high profile characters and A-list celebrities, including Robert Downey Jr. , LeBron James, Nick Cassavetes, Cash Warren and Jessica Alba, whom collaborated with Minnick to create a mural for her ethical empire, The Honest Company.
Danny Minnick is not only an artist – he embodies the spirit of creativity in other avenues, as an actor, filmmaker, director, cinematographer, fuelled by his past career as a professional skater.
