Many Faces~ Daniel Lippencott

NYC ~Daniel Lippencott

Daniel lives and works in Oakland and has been pursuing the visual arts for a number of years starting in the field of photography. His current passion is in the process of collaging his photographic work to make more complex and compelling images than a single photograph can offer. In particular, color is his muse and this more than anything else guides his esthetic process. The ongoing exploration of line, shape, and textures keep Daniel engaged with his artistic and personal evolution in the world of visual self-expression.
