Daniel Caldwell earned his B.A. in Art Direction & Advertising at the University of Hawaii, Manoa. At night he continued to hone drawing and painting skills at The Honolulu Academy of Arts , a fine small museum with a surprising collection of masterworks. Living on west coast had its regional art influence as well. Daniel discovered the Early California landscape painters and the contemporary works of Wayne Thiebaud and Richard Diebenkorn members of the “Bay Area Figurative Movement.” Daniel returned to South Florida in 1986 to work as an art director and VP of sales in his family’s silk screen printing business which sold design and printing services to the tourist industry world wide. Over the last 18 years Daniel has moved his career into painting full time working on figurative subjects, waterfront scenes and beach culture.
