mythical creatures

New Artist – Daniel Nelson

Introducing the whacky world of Manchester-based artist & fresh new talent, Daniel Nelson!

Lemon-headed people & mythical creatures in modern-day settings are just some of the delights to discover in Daniel’s unique portfolio – and we just love his limited colour palette coupled with bold line work & pattern.

Bringing his love of folklore to contemporary life, Daniel creates striking visuals, full of wit, charm & humour.
