About the artist

Daniel Rossi is an Eindhoven-based graphic designer and illustrator. He is originally from Canada. As he describes himself:

I don’t like to tag myself as anything in particular. Better said: I like boxes but not being put into one. This isn’t due to a lack of understanding about what it is I really do, but rather because above all I am lead by intuition. Being a graphic designer, come illustrator, artist who experiments in the tanglible world with furniture and interior spaces, I must rely on not one particular set of skills but many to carry out my work. Blurring the line between art and design is what helps me to achieve this. I believe that to fully explore a concept or idea one must build bridges and not barriers.
