Fusing ancient wisdom with modern symmetry, Danny Darkoski‘s celestial body of work is a portal between physical reality and the sacred infinite.
Utilizing unique script inspired by world alphabets such as Egyptian hieroglyphs, Tibetan, and Arabic, Darkoski delivers powerful messages experienced by the viewer on a deep, subconscious level. He has invented and developed several custom alphabets, which he uses interchangeably with minimal, modern geometry.
With an avid interest in astronomy and metaphysics, Darkoski is drawn to the raw, universal energy that flows through the vastness of space, which in turn, flows directly into his work. His pieces transform the mundane into an altar, expressing the balance between the human experience and the celestial influences that govern it.
Darkoski refuses to remain complacent, finding comfort in challenging himself and pushing each piece beyond the limitations of his environment and internal world. His artwork holds the power of prayer, the beauty of organized chaos in an ever evolving universe, and the inspiration to expand beyond our limitations.
Darkoski’s creative abilities extend far beyond the canvas. He is a multifaceted and dynamic illustrator, painter, muralist, graphic designer, and creator of large scale installations and animated visualizers. He graduated from the Art Institute of California - Hollywood and spent two years in Goa, India, as an artist in residence at Vaayu Vision Collective. He now lives in Los Angeles and works out of his studio in the Downtown LA Arts District.
