1936 – 2013

London-born artist Harvey Daniels had a long career; lecturing at Brighton College of Art, then moving on to make artwork full-time, participating in many exhibitions.  Eventually, he moved to a studio in France where he continued to develop his work.

Daniels’ work is exemplified by bright, geometric patterns.  The compositions are very playful and energetic through his use of colour, shape and pattern.  It has been said that the artist used his artwork to communicate joy and energy; a way of channelling optimism and positive potential.

During his time at art-school, critics and others defined his work as pop-art, but slowly over the years his work became increasingly abstract and geometric.  His work is represented in collections throughout the world, including our colourful collection here at GHAT.
