Daniel Preece LG
Born in London in 1970. He lives and works in London. He studied at Chelsea School of Art 1988–89, the Slade School of Fine Art 1989-93 and the Royal Drawing School 2006- 07.

His work has mainly been about the urban landscape using the city as a starting point to explore formal issues of geometry and colour that hover between abstraction and figuration. The paintings have evolved from a pictorial landscape tradition, working directly from observation to create a sense of place and space using a strong personal colour palette.

Daniel has been Artist in Residence at Dumfries House in 2015 and Kensington Palace in 2008-09. He was Artist in Residence and visiting Professor at IIFA, Modinigar, India in 2011. In 1995 he was Given a Boise Scholarship to travel and make work in the USA. He was runner up in the Laing landscape and Seascape Award in 2001 and won second prize in the Gilchrist Fisher Memorial Prize for Landscape Painting in 1997.
