Hi, my name is Daniel (Wesseik, b. 1985)
and I do what I do. The doing result in visual art, films, loops. In my work I combine disciplines and melt mediums together - Handdrawn, 2D, 3D.  I emphasize invention and try to challenge myself and the audience, with a kiss on the chick on the side.

My works have repeating themes of spirituality, nonsense and psychological exploration and have been presented in museums and galleries around the world. Originally from Jerusalem, Israel, I’m nowadays based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Alongside my practice I teach at the
St.Joost school of art and design.

I’m currently part of the Playgrounds-Next
talent program
for 2022-2023.
