Hey, I'm Daniel!

Boston, Massachusetts

"My work seeks to tell stories that entertain and enlighten, that both challenge and champion our understanding of ourselves and this world in which we live.   The goal is always to re-establish the connection between the individual and the collective, and bridge the gap between art, artist, observer and environment." -Daniel


Daniel Callahan is a transmedia artist and designer living in Roxbury MA.  His work merges various disciplines including but not limited to music, video, painting, drawing, collage, animation, photography, and performance to create immersive experiences that aim to reveal the inner humanity that link us to each other and to our world at large.


His current work centers on the MassQ; a ritual marking of the face with paint to reveal the essence of the wearer. MassQing (the process of creating a MassQ) requires a deeper, more intimate encounter between artist, subject and viewer and derives from the ancient phenomena of body decoration practiced by nearly all indigenous cultures on the planet.


Daniel is a graduate of the Pennsylvania School of Design, where he received the Fine Arts Chair Award for outstanding work in a senior thesis exhibit and a current Graduate MFA Fellow in the Visual Media Art Program at Emerson College.  

His work has been featured in the Museum of Fine Arts, The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and the Institute of Contemporary Art and has been featured in such publications as Believer Magazine, The Bay State Banner, and Words Beats & Life: The Global Journal of Hip-Hop Culture.  He is co-founder of the artist collective Fear & Fancy, a recipient of the Donor Circle for the Arts Grant, out of Oakland CA
