When creating his artwork, Hooper calls upon techniques from his construction background. By initially painting in blocks, he is able to slowly build layers up to add movement to the finished product. The end result, and the reaction from his audience, is what drives him to continue creating art.
Because of his background, Hooper admits he gets messages from people from all walks of life. Thriving from the buzz of selling his one-off art pieces to the public, he admits he finds it important to “take the snobbery” away from art, and tries to make it accessible to a more broad audience.
Daniel Hooper continues to work on canvas, but occasionally returns to his roots working with timber, and remains dedicated to creating one-off powerful pieces with soul.
