I met Danu in front of the Motion Art Gallery. I quick explained to him what the blog was about and he was more than happy to have a quick chat. After my initial questions we go to chatting about other things and art. Danu than informed me he was currently working on some paintings inside the art gallery, so away we went to see what he was painting. He had some pretty cool paintings and he was a pretty cool and down to earth guy. If your interested in checking out some of his work you can find some of his work at the Motion Gallery in Calgary or swing by his Facebook group for more information. (Danu has a website at infiniterealities.org, however it seems to be down at this moment in time)

Rob – another great personality from Calgary, soon to be Calgary – formerly-known-as-a-cow-town, thanks in large part to your work. You know how many people I’ve met who have been to Calgary? None. And, I’ve been everywhere, as Johnny Cash once sang.
Thank you very much Scott! You should really make a trip out here one of these days then! I’d come in the summer if I was you 😉
It would have to be – I own nothing but shorts, flip-flops, and a couple of shirts in case I have to go do anythng official. Last time my band went through that area it was something like -70 F in Billings, and didn’t get much warmer as went through Canada.
Great commentary and great portrait! 😀
Thank you! 🙂
If I saw this guy on the street I would totally think artist. What a fun way to spend the day. To bad the motion art don’t post some of their gallery on-line.
Haha totally right! But yes, that would be cool if Motion did that.
Danu seems to be very cool. Toronto would love him. Do you have any more pics of his work? I’m not on Facebook.
Sorry but no I do not. I didn’t take any pictures of his paintings. Trying to keep things on here a little minimalist 😉
Okay, I like your minimalistic style! 😉
Thank you! 😀
