"This was my first piece fusing these medias of graphite, ink and charcoal together. It was a new fun way for me to experiment with graphite that would lead to my more intricate charcoal work. With this piece early on I was taking a look at x-rays and decided to combined that with my figurative work and anatomical studies." - Dan Quintana
Dan Quintana’s works have evolved as he has evolved as an artist. The graphic in-your-face sensibility from his street art days has moved toward the more ethereal and deeply layered with splashes of painterly abstraction. His Mel Ramos-esque girls now exist in abstracted Boschian landscapes rife with leering gremlins and bold fauna, symbols of humanity’s courage in the face of the ever-present pitfalls and pains of life. The intensity in the eyes of Quintana’s figures makes it known that they are not passively enduring their surroundings. Their will shines through, reflecting both the vulnerability and strength of humanity in the face of a hostile world.
Hailing from Los Angeles, CA, painter Dan Quintana channels a style reminiscent of the late Hieronymus Bosch, but with a modern twist. The tones, brushwork and overall technique of Quintana yield a result which pays homage to the great 13th century master, but it is his subject matter, and re-imagining of today’s “earthly delights” that puts his work in a class all of its own.
This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Dan Quintana and 1xRUN.

Dan Quintana, a talented and imaginative painter from Los Angeles, CA. Quintana’s surrealistic paintings are filled with vivid and eerie symbolism. His dreamy visions are beautifully executed in a way that is reminiscent of the great Dutch and Flemish masters. These exquisitely rendered paintings seem to speak to both the hostility and vulnerability of humanity simultaneously.
