ean Danconia has built a seductive visual universe by marrying cult-cinema & animation to a wild pop-art aesthetic. From fine art to apparel to animation, Danconia's colorful, multi-layered collage of cinematic stories and iconic characters are instantly recognizable.
After living and working in Italy, Hong Kong, Vancouver—this iconoclast Canadian designer/artist/animator burst onto the LA art scene in 2008 lending his iconic style to Disney®, Hello Kitty, the Bob Marley Estate, Anime Expo, King Features and Marilyn Monroe, among others – in addition to various independent projects and exhibits. Featured galleries include Spoke Art, Mouche Gallery, Wonderground Gallery (downtown Disney), Gallery 1988, Hero Complex, Art Insights and Joseph Watson Collection in Las Vegas.
Danconia’s composite world is a “bio pic” of his own imagination: irreverent, prolific, explosive – based on an encyclopedic knowledge of popular culture past, and a knowing eye for future trend undercurrents years before they hit. His creative arsenal integrates hand painting, illustration and photography, with 3D & digital mediums, culminating in what Danconia identifies as "SuperPop - an irreverent rebellion against the SuperFlat and traditional PopArt movements”.
