Daniel Freeman was born in Russellville, Arkansas. He grew up in the small towns of the midsouth. He studied at Memphis College of Art, where he received his Bachelors in Fine Arts and Graphic Design, in 2007. In 2006 Daniel traveled to Florence Italy as a summer student resident he studied at Santa Reparata International School of art. He then learned the foundations of book making and the Italian language.

For over two decades, Daniel has engulfed himself in painting, book design, drawing, photography, digital design as well as song through sound and poetry. Daniel is known for his clever narratives, which flow with his art in elegant fluidity. His creativity for story telling, paint throwing, up-close meticulous fine-tuning art, leaves him searching for new wisdom to stimulate his brain on a day-to-day basis.

As a student at Memphis College of Art he was commissioned to do the posters and ticket design for a Mud Island Rap festival, hosted by MTV. Later he designed billboard concept art for companies such as Chevrolet and Honda. As an intern at Thomson and Company in Memphis, Tennessee, he was given his first taste of the corporate art world were he felt stripped of his creativity and soon realized he wished to pursue a less forced use of his talent. He then went to work for himself as a freelance artist, where the world of art was endless. Daniel now has achieved success in the fields of graphic design, photography, mixed media portraits, painting, drawing and book making.

As a fine artist, Daniel has had numerous individual shows in Arkansas as well as group shows in Tennessee and Louisiana. The most recent to note include; July 2009, Daniel hosted his work as an introduction to the City of Russellville “The Actors for My Stories”. In January 2010, Daniel appeared at the Russellville Art Center “Tear Drops in a Coffee Cup”, in his art talk for the show he explained his unique perspective on art and how it effects his being.

In February of 2010, Daniel was solely commissioned from the Boys and Girls Club of Russellville, Arkansas to paint numerous murals to decorate as well as auction off, in their charity ball. From this experience, he is currently partnered with local businesses to collaborate fresh ideas where his work is subject to design interiors, as well as murals for extravagant parties.

Daniel’s steady focus has recently turned to creating logbooks with his most extreme creative imagery. Said imagery is full of ranging emotion and narrative. The diversity of his stories will truly capture the essence of his artistic mind and allow the audience to connect fully with the spirit of the works.

In a world full of striving artists, Daniel Freeman brings a level of creativity that is uniquely his own. He continues to push the boundaries of conventional as well as experimental thinking for his art making. He believes, “we live how we live, no one can tell us how to do it, that is what makes us who we are. That determines what we become.”

His goal is not to conform audience views to his own, but simply to express the idiosyncratic perspective of his mind.
