About Daryl Gannon

Painter born in London, I have been living in Houston, TX since 2008.
I am fascinated with exploring the potential of childhood. In my youth I always believed my future had endless possibilities and my work is about connecting with that moment. There is a positivity that lies in the approach of a child and an acceptance to the notion that anything could happen next.
Recently I've been creating a series of portriats on post-it notes. I love the idea of using such a common material to create a celebration of someone which in my opinion is the purpose of a portrait.
