The painter uses the abstract art style, which came into use at the end of the 19th century. Abstract pieces are not limited by perspective or by faithfully duplicating reality and instead feature shapes that are representational or partial in nature.
Some artists have a lot of hype around their identity. English artist Banksy is known for… well, not being known. He – or she –keeps everything about him or her a mystery apart from a tag name and artistic activity. Dagger’s identity hype, however, is entirely down to him just being himself.
Dagger is called on to do commissions for people from across the world, and you can see why. The nature of his work uses lovely abstract brush patterns in flowing shapes that spill beautifully across the page. This is especially impressive when you take into account his true nature.
