Daniël van Nes
Dutch artist Daniël van Nes (NL) creates interdisciplinary art universes. His intricate and meticulously-constructed works include illuminated engravings, drawings, mural paintings and large scale immersive installations.
SellFable, A Machine Noir Art Universe
His SellFable Universe reflects on social and technological developments in modern day industrial world, in which concepts such as identity and reality often play a role. Arranging characters and elements in a ‘machine noir’ setting, he illuminates an undefined world that may be waiting for us in the future, or for some already exist in the present.

Daniël is also known for his installations incorporating unique engravings. Reviving the centuries-old techniques of copper and wood engraving, he transposes them to modern materials and new visual concepts, developing a new technique: ‘Illuminated Engraving’. The result of this meticulously handcrafted work can only be seen by use of light.
In 2010 and 2011, Daniël was a curator for the award winning ‘BLOOOM – the creative industries art show’, in Cologne, Germany. His SellFable project was invited for a residency in Urban Nation – Museum for Urban Contemporary Art, Berlin in 2018. His work has been shown in museums, galleries and art fairs around the world, ranging from Berlin, St. Petersburg to London and New York.
