Daniel Segrove | "Creative Portraiture in Mixed Media"
"This video workshop will be about exploring abstract mix media techniques that can be added to traditional portraiture. The goal of this video course is trying to open a path for the viewer to embrace their unique artistic voice while still refining their technical abilities in craftsmanship. The video exercises will be geared toward students who have a desire to refine their creative voice and broaden their understanding of design, texture, and visual rhythm. The course will be broken down to show you both ends of the spectrum. From a more refined approach to drawing the portrait to then understanding how to approach abstract mark making. The end goal being you will have a better understanding of making artwork that feels more confident and unique to the viewers style." - Daniel Segrove

Daniel Segrove's body of work is diverse in subject, medium and content. Daniel’s explorations of traditional subjects such as portraits and the human form are unconventional. Daniel explores the use of paper in an active role, as a concept and a way of self- expression, rather than as simply a passive surface on which to draw. Experimentation and intuition create dynamic figurative works of art, juxtaposing traditional figurative realism with abstraction and minimalism, in visual and psychological contrast.
Segrove's work incorporates oil paint, acrylic, pastel, charcoal, graphite, collage, and mixed visual disciplines.
"My subject matter for the work focuses on the everyday, mundane or monotonous life and trying to project my own experience or significance to these ordinary scenes." Daniel Segrove is a graduate in multidisciplinary mixed media with a BFA from the Academy of Art University, San Francisco. Daniel currently lives and works in California, and has shown his work in the United States and internationally.
