Contemporary hyper-realist painter Daniel Sprick (b. 1953) was raised in Little Rock, Arkansas and later moved to Denver, Colorado. He has studied at the Ramon Froman School of Art, the National Academy of Design, New York, NY and holds an Associate of Art form Mesa College, Grand Junction, and a Bachelor of Art from the University of Northern Colorado, Greeley. Studying with Contemporary masters such as Quang Ho, Sprick’s work has been collected by the Denver Art Museum, and featured in Realism Today Magazine.
Sprick produces meticulously executed portraits and figurative compositions whose muted palettes and sense of stillness encourage slow contemplation. His paintings feature a range of subjects, from still lifes of flowers and unlikely assortments of objects to interiors and urban and pastoral scenes. A diverse range of men, women, and youth populate his portraits and figurative works; taken together, they reflect a rich and encompassing view of humanity. “I’m interested in all walks of life, everyone,” the artist once explained about his choice of subjects. “Some that may be considered conventionally beautiful and others that may not, and everyone in between.”
