Daniel Long (born 1984, Memphis, Tennessee) is a visual artist that explores the human experience with themes of intimacy, partnership, pleasure, and connection deep inside of queerness. Working in primarily painting, Long’s creative practice also includes an array of output including apparel, print editions, and sculptures. His studio practice functions as a way to celebrate the act of painting and provide a stage of permission to celebrate. It is a context and situation for celebration itself. Long received his MFA in Visual Studies from Pacific NW College of Art in 2013 and BFA from Memphis College of Art in 2006. He has shown at Artist Curated Projects and Panel (Los Angeles), Nationale and PMoMA (Portland).
