Daniel Wesseik

Visual Art



Hi, I’m Daniel Wesseik, a visual artist, originally from Jerusalem, Israel, and nowadays based in  the Netherlands.

In my works I pour my fascination with the occult, dreams, folklore, fantasy, surrealism, sociology and psychology.

The forms I grant my ideas result in films, experimental animation and character designs.

Always happy to cooperate. Reach me at:
