Dan Hillier


I've been working as a full-time artist since 2006 and sell my work personally from this site and from The Sunday Upmarket each week, and also through solo and group shows. I've exhibited in various established galleries including the Saatchi Gallery and the ICA in London, and numerous galleries and solo/group shows in London, Paris, New York and Turin.

Dan Hillier is a professional artist based in Stoke Newington, England. He produces his own pictures as well as making commissioned artworks for various clients including Neil Gaiman. Most of his work is made from collaging found Victoriana with his own ink drawing, as well as producing original ink drawings using dip-nib pen and ink.

Dan is acclaimed for his black line engravings that embody the ‘Steampunk’ aesthetic, combining Victorian sensibilities with a fascination for animal attributes. His work is characterized by depictions of fantastical human/animal hybrids, spliced together from late-1800s imagery. These beautiful, classically rooted images find their power in their unsettling effect, as they seamlessly blur distinctions normally implied by reality.
