Danny Hampson is a founder member of seminal 80’s post-punk band Modern Eon. He is Liverpool-born but spent his early teens in the 70’s growing up in Skelmersdale – a New Town which was bright, modern and futuristic. In the 70’s environment of heavy rock, glam rock, modern architecture and new art forms, he started to explore his creative inclinations through music and art with music being his primary artistic pursuit.
He enjoyed a significant level of success in the music world but after Modern Eon split (and several musical adventures later) art became his number one passion.
As a mature student Danny went to London College of Printing where he discovered a particular passion for printmaking and obtained an upper 2:1 BA (Hons.) in Print Media (Surface Design).
Danny’s love of silkscreen printing has evolved and he now utilises Photoshop as the perfect alternative to traditional print media. Importing photography, texture, line drawing and using layering techniques, he has developed a distinctive style creating artworks of a complex and dynamic nature.
Danny is represented by KMR Management.
