designer loves art...Dan Dunn...151

what do you get when you mix music, paint and speed

this is Dan Dunn

born in Huston his popularity soared when is daughter posted a youtube video of him in one of his performances. in his studies he specialized in oil and watercolor paintings but his main work  seems to be acrylic on canvas( i might be mistaken here). he said that his inspiration is Denny Dent  who was a speed painter. if you watch some of his videos you will be amazed on how skilled he is.  i enjoyed his performances and hope to see many more of them and fingers crossed  one day in person.
