Daniel Crawshaw’s evocative, mysterious landscape paintings often appear photographic but are borne out of his photographic explorations of remote mountain environments. His works, of varying scale, exploit the intervention of digital technology and are taken from images gathered when walking, sometimes simply on a camera phone. The transient nature of these surroundings is suggested through paintings worked in close series in oil on canvas or board.

Having grown up in the Welsh borders, Daniel divides his time between his Copeland Park studio and North Wales. Much of his work depicts his native Wales although he has also travelled widely to Europe, Australia and the Canadian Rockies. His paintings reference wild, remote, landscapes and he prefers to works from recalled experiences, seeking to reconnect to the landscape through memory.

Daniel settled on the bustle of Peckham to inspire his landscapes: “Being an artist here is very exciting and it’s interesting working with landscapes in the bustling, multicultural city. I have been in my Bussey Alley unit for 8 years and made many paintings here. An entire exhibition of works depicting the Australia bush were created behind these unassuming double doors”.

He has exhibited frequently in London and the UK and is represented by Martin Tinney Gallery in Cardiff. His work was included in Mindscapes at bo.lee gallery at their space on Rye Lane and has been shown in numerous group exhibitions such as the National Eisteddfod of Wales, Oriel Davies Open, Jerwood Drawing Prize and Beep 2016.
