About The Series
A devotee of the figurative style of art, Darryl Daniels decided to transform the drawings he was making to explore the spatial distance between the abstract figures into the jazz musicians in his signature series of paintings.
It was part of an idea that Daniels had been exploring which fused the confluence of the Rohrschach test-like images on a Steely Dan album cover with the compositional style of fashion magazine ads, with the cool of 1950s photos captured of jazz legends in their prime with elements of his design background.
This eclectic brew evolved over time, with attention to the details of developing visual consistency. This ideal led the artist to paint all of the figures in black, which lent to the abstractness of the style he preferred. In addition to symbolizing the connection between the musicians, this approach allowed the statuesque players standing out amidst the spectra of background scenarios.
Beginning with Traffic Jam in 1990, the series has evolved into Daniels signature style that is recognized worldwide. The musicians have been featured on television programs, commercial advertisements, film and recordings.
Almost 30 years later, Daniels is still sketching out new ideas for new pieces. Although, very selective about which he paints and releases publicly. With the emergence of technologies in printing and the internet, he is now pleased to make his work more available. In addition to more original works being made available for purchase, framed and unframed open edition prints and canvases can be purchased here, with special limited edition canvases available exclusively through Darryl Daniels Artworks.
