daniel’s chickens


the big thing idea behind dready art was that it be ‘simple’ in its representation of stuff it wasn’t to be exact but to be recognizable … Daniel’s Chickens are a good example … there I was busily drawing chickens that looked like chickens when Daniel Ebanks stopped by ‘you’re trying too hard, make them more simple’ he said, it was a sort of moment of revelation about how to express something in its simplest form; we sat down, we drank some coffee and we hashed out the chickens. 

the end result was 5 lines and a coloured comb with a pointillist body … daniel’s chickens!
daniel was the very first person to buy a piece of dready art; I think he has a collection of 6 or 7 pieces and his are a reflection of the progression of dready.
Thanks
