Dan Syrett or SYRETT as he goes by, has a background in the fashion industry as a textile designer and fashion stylist. As a designer he worked for some of the largest fashion brands in the U.S., London and Paris. His work as a fashion stylist led to him working within the music industry, styling international artists for film, TV and videos. His work as a designer and stylist has been published in over 200 international and national publications.
SYRETT started painting about 10 years ago, working in an urban style. He gained acclaim for his ‘Death of Victoriana’, a series of stencilled skulls on antique plates, and also his ‘Graffiti Butterflies’ which he exhibited in a group show with Blek le Rat, D*Face and Swoon amongst others. He has exhibited in London, New York, Miami, Paris and Florence and was the first artist to exhibit at the International Music Summit in Ibiza. Tony Chambers Editor-in-Chief Wallpaper* Magazine sums up his work perfectly:
“Syrett’s art is bold, powerful, simple and beautiful, and his earlier experience in the fashion industry adds a unique perspective.”
Working primarily in nail varnish, SYRETT works in a similar way to Jackson Pollack creating simplistic yet complex colourscapes, which are highly stylised and glossy. SYRETT paints 2 collections per year like the fashion industry, Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter.
