Dan Baldwin (Manchester, 1972) is a contemporary artist who is considered a leading figure in the Young British Artists movement. Over his 30-year career, Baldwin has moved seamlessly between several mediums, including painting, silkscreen prints, ceramics, bronzes and film. Dan Baldwin’s multi-layered allegorical artworks evoke strong contrasting ideas of nostalgia, innocence, decay, and love. His love of color and symbolism are evident, and his works are often never planned but built up in layers, eliminating what isn’t working as he goes. Described by BBC Arts correspondent Maeve Doyle in 2018 as ‘Psychological Landscapes’, he is trained in Communication Media from 1990-92 at Eastbourne College of Art & Design and received his degree with commendation from the Kent Institute of Art - (Maidstone) from 1992-1995. He has collaborated with many artists, designers, musicians and brands on album art, fashion collections, book covers, and more. He has featured in multiple group exhibitions & art fairs worldwide & produced solo shows since 1998 worldwide. He supports many charities annually like CALM, The Willow Foundation, The Old Vic, The Teenage Cancer Trust and Peter Jones Foundation, to name only a few. In 2016 he had a print retrospective at Saatchi gallery London and in 2021 was commissioned by Sir Ivor Roberts, head of Keats/Shelley Memorial Association, to produce a pot celebrating the Bicentennial of poet Keats.
