Daniel Gasser was born in Mulhouse in Alsace and went on to study at the Ecole des Arts Décoratifs in Strasbourg. Before concentrating on his painting full-time he worked as an illustrator for a number of publishers and advertising agencies.
His paintings are deeply expressive and highly sensuous. Often using a combination of blues, reds and yellows he is able to merge realism with abstraction to create supremely evocative images. His ‘Mythologie’ series is indicative of much of his work.
