Müdwig Has A Beef System
Daniel Sparks AKA Müdwig. Consider us astounding when we discovered we had such talents working in our very team! Like many relationships within Verdant we met Dan on the football pitch and after asking him to help out at the brewery a few days a week we discovered his artistic talents. It only felt natural to ask Dan to contribute to our Cornish Creatives series.
Dan, is an English visual artist that works with several art forms including sculptures, painting and illustration. Daniel Sparkes has exhibited his work all over the United Kingdom, but also internationally in solo exhibitions in Calm and Punk Gallery in Tokyo, Sons and Studio in Copenhagen and Royalcheese Gallery in Paris.
As per normal we asked Dan the Cornish Creatives set of questions and this is his response!
Q1: Explain what you do in one short sentence.
I make oil paintings, drawings and murals pieces that are comically abstracted totems to a fusing of brutalism and nature.
Q2: Did you study your trade and if so where?
Q3: How did you get into your groove?
Q4: How long have you been creating?
Q5: If you weren't creating what would you be doing?
....But more likely I would have just studied 18th-20th century European military history..
Q6: What’s beyond your wildest dreams?
Q7: Who do you take the most inspiration from and why?
Q8: Why did you create / choose these pieces for the can art?
Q9: What does Cornwall mean to you?
