'A New Life' for Dan Baldwin at Signal Gallery in London

LONDON.- Dan Baldwin’s work has attracted so much attention over the past few years that he must be considered to be one of the most talked about artists of his generation. Since his run of sell out solo shows in the mid naughties and the significant success at a Bonhams auction in 2008 (‘Apocalypse Wow – The End Of Everything’ sold for £25,000) Baldwin has been continually in demand both in the UK and abroad. Important recent solo shows at the Forster Gallery, London and The Carmichael Gallery, Los Angeles, as well as appearances at leading international art fairs such as Scope Basel, London Art Fair and Pulse, have underlined this earlier success.

Dan studied Illustration at Maidstone School of Art. He has used this grounding extremely effectively to produce paintings that are both stylish and very well executed, while in no way appearing to be purely illustrative. Baldwin’s style is a fantastical amalgamation of elements that reflect almost a ‘stream of consciousness’. The apparent spontaneity of the works, combining a cornucopia of imagery about love, childhood, death and politics for starters, successfully balances a cheeky humour with an underlying seriousness of intent. Each work manages to convey it’s own atmosphere, while always being recognizable as the work of Dan Baldwin.

For his solo show at Signal Gallery entitled, ‘A New Life’ the artist will be celebrating a number of important changes in his life. His relatively recent move to a country retreat, imminent fatherhood and a desire to strip back his artwork, have all contributed to a sense that this is a new beginning. For the show, he will be producing a series of works on wood of different sizes. The approach of the work will have a renewed innocence and gentleness, while never losing that sense of fun and the familiar bracing sting in its tail.
