Artist biography

Daniel Africano was born in 1983 in Porto, Portugal. He is a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Porto, Portugal. He had a brief stint at the Florence Academy of Art, Italy. Much of his technique is driven by self-taught self-study by The-Old-Masters.

Anchored in the classical traditions, his artistic work integrates a range of references and themes from history and mythology to surrealism, symbolism, simple realistic depiction of everyday life and other relevant topics. 

During his artistic career, he has participated in several individual and group exhibitions. He also works with portraits and private commission assignments in illustration and concept design. He teaches his own courses and workshops with oil painting, portraits, drawing, the human body and teaching old painting techniques. His studio is called "Atelier Daniel Africano". The studio is located in central Porto, from where he develops his artistic career.
