“One mark on a canvas determines
where the next one will go”



Daniel Van Klei was born in Chilliwack,
B.C.  Daniel graduated from Simon Fraser
University after completing a
B.A., and a B.Ed (Visual Art).  

Van Klei's artwork is currently featured at the following art
galleries in Canada:








While living in numerous rural areas of British Columbia Daniel
Van Klei would often explore the fields and forests on his own.  
Living in rural areas also meant spending a lot of time traveling
in vehicles where he would constantly frame the shifting world
through a car window.  These early experiences were
instrumental in his perceptions and development as both a
painter and photographer.  Later these perceptions would
further develop as he completed his private pilots license and
began to experience the earth from above in a different, more
abstract, perspective.

Van Klei’s tendency towards ambiguity and abstraction in his
works are often established around more tangible yet elusive
elements such as wind or water.  These elements are
deceptively simple things that everyone experiences everyday
and yet are difficult to describe without using emotional
symbolic references.  Van Klei’s work refers to his personal
experiences of sensing a space, and all of life’s elements. He
values the unknown, questions exactly where one is going,
with a belief that there are no coincidences.
