Danko

As a kid I was fascinated by primates. Fast-forward years later to the first painting I ever attempted. Staring at that blank canvas, I was stumped as to subject matter but quickly landed on the idea of a collage of primates, one of which was a gorilla. As I swiped my brush, loaded with paint, across the brow of the gorilla, I knew I was hooked on painting for good and a by-product of that revelation was that I had a new muse. The ‘Danko Gorilla’ has taken on various forms and iterations–continuing to evolve, lockstep with my work.
