ABOUT DANIEL MUÑOZ.
Born and residing in Moraleja (Spain),
Daniel Muñoz started his career in the early nineties by painting on the walls of his native town. After many years of self-study, mostly focused on mural paintings, he shifted to the city of Madrid in the year 2000 to begin his studies in Fine Arts at the Complutense University. In the early years of his career in Madrid, he began to perform painting displays and interpositions in various Spanish and European cities.
His work was then influenced by a plastic evolution and he established sketching as his main language tool.
Since the beginning, Daniel Muñoz’s work has been relatively figurative, since he initiated his career by exclusively using public spaces as the main medium of exchange. By doing so, he made his messages recognizable for most people, without socio- economic differentiation between the masses.
His language consists of various codes and symbols that arouse us to interpret them in a careful manner, keeping in mind the narration of classical painting and the sociological narration of contemporary art. Despite narrating facts and common anecdotes based on the most mundane topics, his work also makes us consider diverse and confusing interpretations.
Throughout his journey, he has executed numerous painting displays and interpositions in various public spaces of Europe, North and South America, Asia and the Middle East. He has also participated actively in a number of exhibition rooms such as the Luis Adelantado Gallery in Valencia, the BACC Museum of Bangkok, CEART (Fuenlabrada) or the National Gallery of Amman in Jordan.
His work has been published in numerous well-reputed artistic publications and books.
