An Urban Scientist – Robert Daniels


“I am inspired by the desire to tell a story. Artists are messengers and we document information in a visual form.
I want both our children and African-American adults to feel pride and identify with their rich and illustrious history. Art is a source of pride and spiritual healing.
Robert Daniels is a passionate abstract artist who works beyond the confines of convention. His work is layered with historical themes relating back to his African ancestors, and filled with spiritual undertones. Daniels’s art takes on a form of spiritual worship. His work breathes vivid colors; his use of collective linear planes and textures define his exquisite signature style. Daniels’s Nappy Head Art is remarkably intricate and refined, yet unpretentious and warm. Daniels is a Visual Scientist.

Daniels is a graduate of Herbert H. Lehman College of CUNY with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Studio Art-specializing in Printmaking
and Graphics.
