Daniel Maidman is primarily self-taught.
He has attended life drawing workshops 2-3 times a week since 1998. He also spent two years working on
an anatomical atlas based on human cadaver dissections in which he participated at Santa Monica College,
under the guidance of Dr. Margarita Dell. Illustrations from his atlas are in use in the United States Army’s
forensic field manual. He moved to New York in 2006. His current paintings range from the figure and
portraiture to still lives, machines, and cityscapes.
His work has been shown in juried shows at galleries in New York, California, Ohio, Missouri, and Oregon,
as well as at Gallery Mess, the restaurant of the Saatchi Gallery in London. He has been a finalist in The
Artist’s Magazine’s figurative painting competition (2009, 2010), and his paintings and writing on art have
been published by ARTnews, American Art Collector, International Artist, Poets/Artists, SUNY-Potsdam,
and the blogging section of artistdaily.com, the online presence of American Artist magazine. His work is
included in numerous private collections, among them those of Chicago collector Howard Tullman, novelist
China Miéville, and author Kathleen Rooney.
