Portfolio: Danny Ivan

Digital artist, Lisbon, Portugal

Lisbon-based digital artist Danny Ivan uses geometric shapes and bold colour palettes in his work, often incorporating nature photography into the designs too. Here, he tells us a bit more about himself, his style and his portfolio.

Where did you train and what did you specialise in?

I taught myself from the age of 14, when I started out by practicing my style using photographs sent to me by girls to create more artistic effects. Shame on me.

What are your favourite tools?

I love to use a pencil with a ruler and compass to start my image, and after that, I use Illustrator and Photoshop to complete it.

What techniques and approaches do you use most?

I often use bold colours and patterns to create an abstract feel to my work.

What has been your favourite piece you've created and why?

It was a special series inspired by stained glass and Portuguese sidewalks. I enjoy it because it's eye-catching and it's all about the movement and excitement and bold colours.

Which clients have you worked for?

Fab.com, raad.fr, Stop&Walk, FNAC, NeonMob.

What/who are your biggest influences?

One of my biggest influences is cubism and pop art, but I really love the work of Andy Gilmore, too.

What are you working on now?

I'm about to finish a big project that involved creating 100 images in 12 weeks.
