Past. Present. Future.
Better known under the alias DKAISM, Daniel is a Filipino artist who grew up in Canada and started his art journey in 2014 by watching youtube tutorials by concept artists such as Feng Zhu, Tyler Edlin and more. He launched his online portfolio in 2017, and has since made a profound impact on the Toronto art community. Many tend to compare his style with the cyberpunk sub-genre, and it's true that his typical cityscapes remind us of a scene from the original “Blade Runner”. But they do nevertheless open up to a more sensitive and poetic approach to the city. The sci-fi elements comes and go with Daniel, but no matter what he depicts, he seems to have a natural gift for combining the past, present and future in a mesmerizing way.
