Daniel T. Manoogian
American, born March 30, 1960
Daniel T. Manoogian is an oil painter focused on bold, action based, abstract art. Drawing inspiration from a history of intense curiosity, world adventure, nature, personal challenges, successful entrepreneurship, love of music, and parenting.
Dan’s work reflects his human experience with internal dialogue, being in relation with others, and interacting with the world at large. Using different abstract styles and techniques, his images combine excitement, conflict, complexity and the dramatic.
A life well lived involves balance: effort and effortlessness, exploration, self examination, adjustment and acceptance. Rarely straight forward nor neat and tidy, the beauty and wonderment can be seen both in the interaction of the details as well as the overall composition. Flawed and broken, but very much alive.
