Daniel Pulman (b. 1975) was born in Manchester, UK, and received his master’s degree in painting from the Royal College of Art, UK in 1999. He has lived London, Paris, New York and Taichung, and has spent the last few years travelling extensively in China, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. He specializes in visualizing his observation, perception and memory of natural landscape and cultural characteristics of different places through painting the everyday life of ordinary people. Drawing upon the 19th-century European tradition of figurative and landscape painting, his style demonstrates a mastery of Western oil painting techniques, as well as new interpretations of the three-dimensional and the abstract through the use of lines and colors in figurative themes. Futhermore, influenced by Eastern art and culture, Pulman’s work displays an amalgamation of refined Western painting methodologies and Eastern humanistic landscape.
