Danny Heller was born in Los Angeles, California in 1982. For formal art instruction, Danny left Los Angeles for the College of Creative Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. While studying under California landscape painter Hank Pitcher, Danny earned a B.A. in art with an emphasis in painting. After formative years spent capturing Santa Barbara’s surf landscapes, Danny’s attention turned toward retro iconography characteristic of mid-century Los Angeles. Moving back to Los Angeles and setting up his studio in Silver Lake, the artist now concentrates on chronicling Modern American imagery, specifically focusing on the architecture, design, and car culture found in Southern California.
