Artist Statement

I begin with ideas I want my art to, in some way, “discuss” – to be visual vehicles for an expanded conversation on some specific topic.

I find precedents in early art and then elaborate on those through my own technical and expressive abilities. The result is a creative interaction that is often surprising to me – and fascinating to my clients.

My subjects are mostly futuristic, rendered into figurative images that sometimes contain symbolic elements, combined with colorful forms or landscapes, to create the coded message in the artwork.


Daniel Heller is an architect and multidisciplinary artist who works in several art mediums including oil painting, fine art photography, digital illustration and new media art.

His style is mostly figurative representational realistic, depicting subject matter that is futuristic in nature. He was influenced by the surrealists and derives inspiration from the old masters.

The artist graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from the faculty of architecture in Florence, Italy. He has practiced architecture for over 35 years, designing numerous healing environments in the United States. He exhibited in several countries and his works are held in private collections in Australia, UK, Israel and the United States.

He lives and works in New York.
