Danny Fox was born in 1986 in St Ives, Cornwall, and currently lives and works between Los Angeles and London. Fox’s characters are often directly influenced by the homeless community of Skid Row. Despite all odds, these characters radiate a sense of unquantifiable style and swagger that Fox’s aims to highlight in his paintings.

His paintings take on the form of pictographs, coming to life through a didactic composite of symbols and characters, both on horseback and gloved. Similar to the histories of his characters and the genesis of their influences, Fox’s physical canvases are very much allegories in themselves.
