Daniel Silva’s work typically takes the form of assemblages that inform and transform the space around them. Perception and contemplation play an integral role in forming a cohesion that is not let by a fixed narrative. Among the materials used by Silva are beeswax, magnets, charcoal, metal and wood, all fundamental in delivering an orchestrated interplay of emotive and referential cues.


Silva has studied apiculture and his latest residencies in Colombia and Japan incorporated a beekeeping component that have informed the work with concepts such as Swarm Intelligence.


The artist lives and work in London, UK and Bogota, Colombia.
