dannyBorn September 1968, Victoria, Mahe, Seychelles. Trained in Fined Art, School of Art and Design Seychelles Polytechnic, 1986 – 1988

Danny Sopha’s recent paintings are focused on the cultural and natural heritage of Seychelles. Marine life and the traditional music of Seychelles are two inter-related themes addressed in his work at the present time. Some of the paintings are also focused on current affairs and global issues that goes beyond the borders of Seychelles, composed of a montage of images carefully arranged over the canvas to create a visual narrative which the viewer may interpret in his own way. His palette ranges from warm yellow and orange hues to cool blues and greens all of which also evoke the sensation of music which the artist depicts through some of the images in his paintings. The marine paintings are a combination of two-dimensional images embellished with three-dimensional found-objects to create assemblages on a highly textured surface.

The recent interest in found materials and technique reveals a new direction in the works of Danny Sopha and the kind of concept he will probably address in the future.
