Daniel Mirante is a visionary painter, explorer and teacher dedicated to expressing a creative vision of human life and the world, deep with mystery and the play of archetypal and mythological forces.
Daniel has exhibited widely across the visionary art world and beyond. His work appears in several international collections and publications as well as in temples in the UK and South America. He also embraces new avenues of creative expression including leading global culture festivals Burning Man (USA), Rainbow Serpent (Australia) and Boom (Europe). His interest in visionary and sacred art was and continues to be strongly influenced by intensive spiritual work within indigenous cultures and mystical lineages. Meditation, ceremony, nature, plants, and human relationship are his deep wellsprings for his art.
Daniel was mainly self-taught, until 2012, when he studied mischtechnik in Vienna with Ernst Fuchs, the founder of Fantastic Realism and teacher of Mati Klarwein and Robert Venosa. Daniel was the master’s last apprentice. Later, he studied with Timea Tallian, a painting restorer and conservator at the Victoria and Albert Museum. This gave him footing in traditional old masters techniques, whilst embracing new technologies as tools of expressing creativity.
Daniel believes the circle is complete when experience is transmitted to the next generation. His teaching style is highly regarded by his contemporaries and students. He has taught at the Tobias School of Art Therapy UK, is a founding faculty member and teacher (alongside contemporaries such as Amanda Sage, Autumn Sky and Oleg Korolev) with The Vienna Academy of Visionary Art, teaches at the Visions in the Mischtechnik seminars in Italy, pioneered visionary art workshops in Australia, and most recently held workshops with Ainhoa Neith with Visionary Art India.
