Artist bio

Nationality Spanish, b. 1976
Location: Alicante, Spain

Daniel Sueiras Fanjul was born in Alicante, Spain in 1976. In 2000 he studied sculpting at the University of Fine Arts in Santa Isabel de Hungria. He previously studied art with Will Wilson in the US and Antonio López García in Spain.

Since 1996, he has won several awards for his work. From the FUND Concession FRONTERASUR in 2009 and the 1st Prize in Certamen Confederación de Empresarios de Cádiz. In 2008 he won the 1st Prize in Ciudad de la Letras de Tomelloso and in 2006, he won the Painting Modality Alcalde Zoilo Prize. In 2001 he won the 1 Gallery Prize in Murcia, Spain and in 2000 he won the TALENS Prize by Fund Concession in Barcelona and also the National Painting Contest from University of Seville. In 1999 he got an Honor Mention at the Antonio López Garcia Prize and in 1996 he got an Honor Mention at the National Painting Contest from University of Seville.

His work inevitably catches the viewer's attention due to the playfulness and irony in the subjects, a commentary on our place as human beings. His latest project: ‘Natural Selection’ is a tribute to Charles Darwin´s discoveries on evolution as well as an irony on some of its inevitable conclusions. By presenting established cultural images in different contexts, the idea is to create a space for us to laugh at ourselves as a species, and at a deeper level, to remind us that we still belong to the animal kingdom.
