Daniel Muñoz (Moraleja, Cáceres 1980)
Daniel Muñoz began his artistic career in the early 90s painting the walls of his hometown, and after many years as a self-taught artist, centered exlusively in murals, he moved to Madrid in the year 2000 to start his Fine Arts degree in the Universidad Complutense (UCM). During his early years in the capital he embarked in his first exhibitions and mural interventions in many spanish and european cities. From that moment on, his work experienced a plastic evolution, with painting as the basic tool of his language.
The public spaces that served for so many years as his exclusive support helped to define the figurative nature of his work, making his messages recognizable to as many people as possible, regardless of socio-cultural differences.
His language is made of symbols and codes that require an attentive view, as it swings between classical painting narrative and the sociological speeches of contemporary art.
All of his works forces us to delve in diverse and puzzling interpretations, even though they narrate everyday experiences and anecdotes, based in the most topical things.
In the past few years he has taken part of numerous exhibitions and interventions in public spaces across several countries in Europe, North America, South America, Asia and the Middle East. Worthy of mention are international exhibition spaces such as the Galeria Luis Adelantado (Valencia – Spain), BACC Museum (Bangkok – Thailand), CEART (Fuenlabrada – Spain) or the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts (Amman – Jordan).
His work has been published in several books and publications of artistic prestige.
