Our friendship with Yorkshire Artist Danny Abrahams began in 2012 when he walked into the gallery with an armful of paintings asking if we thought he was any good!
We really loved his beautiful yet naive landscapes with their quirky characters and we knew straight away that Danny was something special!
All of those first paintings sold that week and the reaction to his work was huge!
Danny's confidence grew. His style developed and became more refined and we found that more and more people came to see what all the fuss was about!
Danny didn't even pick up a paintbrush until the age of 32... and everything he knows about painting is self-taught.
Word spread and the popularity of Danny’s work grew... and continues to grow... people of all ages find a familiarity in his paintings and the recollection of happy days, by people from all generations, is something quite remarkable!
His happy world of long sunny days, bicycle rides and walks in the country, have brought smiles to us all and made many a heart swell.
Danny says“Growing up in the eighties, I’m from a generation of kids who ‘played out’. It was a time of innocence, a carefree time, filled with fun and adventure. Use your imagination and fall into my world, where summer holidays last forever and snow falls so deep that it goes over the top of your wellies. Never stop dreaming!”
Whether you’re looking for an original painting or a limited edition print, Danny will have something for you, you’ll find separate pages for originals and prints and even a magnificent archive showing the Danny Abrahams historic catalogue.
If you want something more personal then give us a call - we have arranged many commission pieces over the years and will be happy to help you imagine your very own Danny Abrahams painting!
