Daniel Watkins, A.K.A. Rad Dan, is a Sydney born pop-artist renowned for his unimaginable artworks blending 70’s cartoonography WITH Warhol obscurity and colour. Watkins was raised in the art-world by his surrealist painter father, going on to create his own artistic identity as a practicing artist, art director and graphic designer widely known for his role as Creative Director of progressive surf brand, Insight. Having exhibited in L.A., Europe, Japan and Australia, ‘Preservative’ in Room 13 MARKS Daniel’s first exhibition in Indonesia. This collection of work beds a footprint on a neo-expressionist view of celebratory self-destruction, which is rivalled with a ‘justification to reward’. Fast, ignominious, forced to last. Racing, sweaty, thoughts of self-entitlement.
