British artist Dan Newso (b. 1982) has a BA in Fine Art and has painted commissioned murals and artwork professionally for the last 10 years. Since 2008 he has been well known for painting in Birmingham’s post-industrial creative quarter Digbeth. He has exhibited his work internationally with his latest project being a two month residency in Perth, Western Australia.

Throughout 2016 he has developed his pieces combining figurative with abstract content, using negative space, glitched images and collage like layering. He often incorporates the raw surface of a wall to give the work a sense of history and his artwork is painted on highly compressed cement which has a raw texture like a concrete wall.
