Daimon Downey is a Sydney-based contemporary artist whose studio practice focuses on abstract and expressionist painting. With a background in music – a former frontman for Aria award-winning band Sneaky Sound System – his art is loud, full of life, pace and unabashed colour. The artist’s work has struck a chord with local and International clients for over 10 years, with a string of sell-out shows across Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and New York.
Rooted in fantasy and the imagination, the art is born in Downey’s studio overlooking Bondi Beach and invites the onlooker to feel comfort and happiness through its exploration of colour, balance and form. It offers an escape from the mundane and often harsh realities of life. Each timeless piece is designed to be lived with, supplying its owners with a window for safety, pleasure and escape.
Downey has been commissioned to design artworks for some of Australia’s leading interior designers and hospitality operators including Byron Bay hotel Raes on Wategos, Ravesis hotel in Bondi, Matteo Downtown, Matteo Double Bay and North Bondi Fish.
