"Before starting this piece, I paid a visit to the Art Institute of Chicago and spent some time admiring a beautiful painting by Max Ernst, titled Spanish Physician. It is a stunning piece that is loaded with texture, which he achieved by using a technique called decalcomania. The process involves pressing paint between two surfaces. Upon returning to my studio I immediately began playing around and loved the beautiful textures that this technique yielded; this served as a perfect base layer to begin my next painting.
As a result, the original is loaded with texture. To replicate that in the print we have chosen a fine art paper with a great texture and the limited 10 on bamboo panel. As with all of my work, hopefully it strikes a chord with the viewer and inspires emotion, intrigue, and maybe even a story." - Dan May

ABOUT Dan May:
Dan May is a fine artist currently living in Cincinnati, OH. A native of Rochester, NY, Dan attended Syracuse University where he achieved a BFA and began to immediately pursue his artistic interests. As a modern narrative painter, May cultivates a rich texture of the surreal and mysterious in his highly original flowing style. His detail-intensive works have become widely recognized for their dreamlike ability to transcend the natural states of space and time – mostly due to his usage of a very finely honed usage of line. May’s propensity for using hair as a metaphor has become a focal point that he has built on to speak about larger aspects of humanity as well as the dream world, and gives a strong nod to his progressive personal growth and evolution as an artist.
Dan has exhibited his paintings to consistently growing interest in the gallery world and is enthusiastically held in high regard by collectors the world over. May spends the majority of his time either in the studio creating new and inspiring paintings, or with his lovely wife and business manager, Kendal. His paintings have graced the pages of international publications as Hi Fructose Magazine, DPI and Communication Arts among others.
