Do You Know… Daniel Chapman (affectionately known as Chappy)
The one constant in Chappy’s life has been art; primarily drawing and painting which he has done since he was a young child. At the age of eight (8), his family moved from Hawaii to Colorado. For the next 50 years, Chappy lived and explored the Continental Divide from New Mexico to Canada. Lucky for us, he relocated to the Poconos last year… He claims, “it was time for a change of scenery!” Chappy’s interests include art, reading, biking, hiking and fishing.
In September 1996, Chappy was disabled in a car accident. After a long recovery, he decided to go back to college. He earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts (emphasis on Painting) in 2011 from the University of Colorado, graduating Magna Cum Laude!
Oil painting is his main medium, primarily portraiture but he also likes to paint/draw animals and the natural world. Chappy has also created video art and painted murals. His paintings are in private collections around the world. His artistic influences are vast and diverse – including; Lucian Freud, Caravaggio, Andrew Wyeth, Chuck Close and of course, the Beatles, to name just a few!
Chappy’s “true to life” paintings begin at $65.00 and up. To view some of his impressive works, visit The Art Factory of White Mills.
