Blake Daniels, Visual Arts Fellow
Blake Daniels was raised in Cincinnati, Ohio and lives and works in Brooklyn, New York and Johannesburg, South Africa. Daniels’ practice traverses various traditions of storytelling, queer cultural practices, and memory to reveal collateral social histories. The paintings explore the legacies of modernism and contemporary visual language culturally located within Southern Africa and its oscillating relationship with the west. They are the recipient of the Edward L. Ryerson Fellowship from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where they received their BA Fine Arts (2013) and received a Masters in Fine Arts from The University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg (2017). Daniels was included in the critical survey 100 Painters of Tomorrow published through Thames & Hudson (2014) and has been exhibited at galleries and institutions including the Wits Museum of Art in Johannesburg, the Monfai Arts Centre in Chiang Mai, Over the Influene in Hong Kong, BEERS in London, and blank projects in Cape Town.
