Dan Lasata started painting on found objects like skateboards from the age of 12, and still loves finding skateboard decks to use as his canvas.
Dan Lasata used painting as “a way to escape from my own little world”. He kept drawing taking inspiration from Shel Silverstein, Wassily Kandinsky, Barry McGee, and others to refine his own style.
He feels “blessed and lucky to have an opportunity to show my work to people”. Lasata was overwhelmed by the outpouring of support during some of his local shows and says he is “taken aback that people want to see my art”. His use of color vividly brings his imagery to life, and tend to solicit different reactions with his subject matter. While one painting may make you feel nostalgic, another makes you think about the current state of society in general. Dan also likes to create visual direction through his line work that draws your eye right where he wants it.
