Self-taught artist, Gardiner has an interesting creative mind able to explore both human inner reality and human environment. His work is deeply inspired by punk music and visual artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat and Kurt Schwitters. Adopting the innovations introduced by the Dadaism and the Street Art, the artist proposes a new form of Primitivism, that takes shape through contemporary collages and drawings. Determined to communicate his various views of the world, Daniel deals with the themes of mental health, climate change, injustices and present political issues. "The ability to mix child expressivity and mature consciousness characterized Daniel Gardiner. Explicitly influenced by Jean-Michel Basquiat, the English artist is a frank narrator of our age. His artistic approach is able to explore childlike communicability through an adult rationality. Gardiner, in fact, chooses to use his primordial language to face contemporary problems: politics, culture, social troubles and mental illness. The world is both the audience and the subject. There are no geographic limits to become interested in Gardiner’s art. The language is unadulterated, the topic is universal".
