Daniel Merriam is one of the foremost surrealist painters of our time. His watercolor paintings take the viewer on a journey into a world where fantasy and reality collided and exploded in splashes of color, shape and symbol.
A distinctive feature of many of Daniel's works is the presence of various architectural forms and structures in the paintings. Light and graceful, pink and snow-white, they resemble gingerbread houses and castles in the air, soaring among the clouds. This is no coincidence: Daniel Merriam is an architect, so he knows how not only to draw houses, but also to build them. And that is probably why his painted buildings turn out to be so perfect and alive. Constantly striving for perfection, Merriam does not stop experimenting with materials. “I have probably tried to paint with all brushes and on all types of paper that are only known to man,” the artist says with a smile. And he advises his colleagues not to stop searching, develop their own unique style in painting and never be afraid of risk: “Mother Nature always plays and experiments,” says Merriam. - What about you?" Daniel undoubtedly knows what he is talking about: it is difficult to confuse his work with someone else's, and the author calls his style “esthetic dada”.
