Artist Daniel Mullen – Paintings of Architectural Volumes

Selected paintings of architectural volumes created by Amsterdam based artist Daniel Mullen.

Artist Daniel Mullen was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1985. In 2011, he received his BFA at Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, the Netherlands where he still lives and works. His artistic style goes back to his childhood when he was fascinated by constructed space. This fascination continued until the present time and it’s clearly visible in his paintings. Daniel Mullen’s work is based on architectural volumes. He paints a variety of shapes – sometimes in indiscriminate arrangements and sometimes in orderly arrangements. These mostly transparent objects seem completely weightless.

In 2012,  the artist was nominated for the “Buning Brongers” prize for painting and he was one of the finalists of the TV show de Nieuwe Rembrandt. In 2014, Daniel Mullen was nominated for the “Koninklijke prijs for schilderkunst”, which is known as the Dutch royal prize for painting.

Daniel Mullen’s architectural paintings have been shown in several group and solo exhibitions. Below you can see a small selection of his work. If you want to see more, please visit Daniel Mullen’s website: daniel-mullen.com
