Dan Campbell - Board Member, Public Art Chair
Dan Campbell is a board member and chair of the Public Art Committee. He is a local professional artist who creates colorful contemporary paintings. His style reflects a blend of impressionism and semi-abstraction. He has a wide range of subject matter including figurative, landscapes, cityscapes, seascapes, wildlife, music and sports. His medium is original acrylic / oil paintings. he collaborates with clients on commissioned art. Dan’s textured and bold palette knife technique coupled with soft brushwork “blurring the lines of reality” is his trademark.
Dan experienced an epiphany and radical personal renaissance in 2013, realizing his professional life needed a renovation. “It was as if the light came on and everything was clear, I needed to seek that which would satisfy a passion I’ve had since I was a young boy”, says Dan. After a 30 year career in marketing and business, most notably in the health and sports club industry, Dan jumped into creating art full time, with both feet.
Dan is now represented in galleries in Wilmington NC, Hilton Head, SC and several retail locations in the Triangle area. He is a well-known artist and appears regularly at local art festivals. He was the featured artist at a 2016 Gala at the North Carolina Museum of Art.
