Street Artist: Dan Leo

Dan Leo’s contributions to Roskilde Festival grounds brought quite a fairy tale atmosphere to the area. In 2016 he brought several large colorful cut outs of animals that would spy at you from between the trees.

In his own words:

Maybe coming from Ireland, in the later part of my life, has kind of injected the whole appreciation for nature and stuff. A lot of my work, most of it will be character based. A lot of the time it will be based around animals and plant-life, and things.

It’s always a little bit hard to pin your style and describe it. Well I find it hard anyway. I certainly like to try and go for the most clean kind of stuff, that I can get. These real nice sharp lines, is what I really try to do. You don’t necessarily have to do the most detailed thing in the world. Sometimes it’s just a good thing to keep it simple and punchy.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. - Albert Einstein
