Dan says I prefer to approach my work with an element of satire in the spirit of dada and tongue in check, and believes he’s just another example of a misguided lout hell bent on cutting up books in the name of art.

After Graduating from a Fine Arts Degree in painting, He quickly rejected everything he learnt thus sabotaging any chances of ever making a respectable living from art. He still paints however, but due to his lazy demeanor he mostly removes pictures from magazines while in the waiting room of his shrink. Hollywoodsam is Dan Kelly’s reluctant promoter and attorney. Dan’s satire is reflected in his works, and he is definitely no lout sabotaging his art practice, with a very impressive C.V showing a dedicated commitment and achievements in his art practice.
