Dick Daniels

Friday, September 13, 2019

Kansas-City-born illustrator, painter, ceramicist and part-time junk collector, Dick Daniels is a child of the 50’s who blossomed in the full glare of the psychedelic ‘60’s, influenced by the underground commix movement, abandoned amusement parks, American folk art and cheap commercial packaging. Daniels

worked as an illustrator at the Kansas City Star in the ‘80s then a humor artist for Hallmark for 25 years. For extra fun he creates oddball wooden signs painted on found and forgotten weathered Wood in his ramshackle basement studio as well as Hammerspace Community Workshop, surrounded by a sprawling mass of artifacts from his past, present and future.
