The Unpolished Appeal of Daniel Belardinelli


Belardinelli was born in NYC in 1961. Raised in Manhattan, his work has been classified in such categories as “neo-expressionist”, “outsider”, and “self-taught”, to “new generation art brut”. Whatever classification it may be, Belardinelli’s work is passionate and intensely powerful.

"Beauty is on the Street" by Daniel Bellardinelli
Daniel's work has been exhibited and collected all over the world (New York, Atlanta, Seattle, Montreal, Geneva). He was included in the "High On Life--Transcending Addiction" show at the American Visionary Art Museum (2002) and had work in a traveling museum show called "Revelations and Reflections of American Self Taught Artists".

Belardinelli maintains two studios. One in Soho, New York City and the other in the attic of a pre-Civil War building in Boonton, New Jersey. He is represented by the Andrew Edlin Gallery in New York City, Galerie Bourbon Lally in Montreal/Haiti, and Gallerie Chiz in Pittsburgh.

As a child, Belardinelli had difficulty expressing himself verbally to others. As a result, he would draw and paint in order to express his voice.
