Artistic talent combined with life-long exploration of consciousness and devotion to self-realization has given Daniel B. Holeman an ability to depict uplifting and profound sacred imagery. His inspirational paintings have a strong impact on people. Many are deeply touched emotionally – sometimes brought to tears - and describe his paintings as the some of the most beautiful pictures they have ever seen.
Daniel's primary role in Life is that of a Spiritual Guide and Messenger - and the art that comes through him is an expression of that role. He is here to assist others in remembering their connection to Divinity and live from that place - inspired to living their fullest potential, their unique possibility. He knows that more people being that way will bring about a better world for all Life.
Daniel feels it is not so much the beauty as the place it stirs in people that they are responding to. He invites the viewer to dive into a deeper dimension of consciousness while viewing his paintings. The imagery stirs forgotten awareness of a place felt to be HOME – a warm, familiar and heartfelt state of mind – a welcome contrast to the day-to-day world we live in. His work has been used on TV and videos, book and CD covers, magazines, prints, posters, cards and the internet. See some samples of published works here.
Self-taught techniques include oil on canvas with airbrush touchup. The mandala works are pen and ink on paper, and then colored on computer. In recent years he has scanned his paintings into his computer and further manipulated his works and evolved new imagery.
