Daniel Solomon

I am a Toronto-based artist and art teacher. I divide my time evenly between work in my studio and work as a Professor of Art at the Ontario College of Art and Design.

My career now spans forty years. I began painting as an architecture student at the University of Oregon, in the early sixties. My professional career started when I relocated to Toronto in 1967. Since that time I have shown my paintings and sculptures regularly in solo exhibitions in major galleries in Toronto. For many years I had significant gallery representation in both Houston and Montreal.

I have participated in the international art world by exhibiting my work in group shows across Canada, the USA and Europe.

Two elements seem to be present in my work throughout my entire career: a love of intense, vibrant colour and an interest in complex pictorial space. This same combination of elements is found in my paintings, watercolours, sculptures and also in my stage sets.
