Dan Quintana Surreal Salon Lecture
January 27, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Dan Quintana, artist, will present a School of Art lecture in partnership with the Baton Rouge Gallery at the LSU College of Art & Design at 5 p.m. on Monday, January 27, in the LSU Design Building Auditorium (room 103).
A Los Angeles native, Dan Quintana began experimenting with oil painting in high school before shifting his focus to street art. He was then creating numerous murals, many of which can still be seen around his home city. In his early twenties, Quintana started to accept commercial commissions for numerous music labels and tee-shirt designs, which in return offered an opportunity to become a full-time artist. Since then, Dan has been featured in various publications, including LA Weekly, Juxtapoz, Hi-Fructose and more. He was also an artist for West Coast Customs on the MTV show Pimp my Ride and TLC’s Street Customs. However, Quintana’s private pieces were the definite highlight of the young man’s career despite the fact he was a part of many successful shows and publications.
