Born in 1994 in Paducah, Kentucky, USA, Daniel Yocum worked as a music video director in Nashville, Tennessee, for ten years before chilling out and moving to painting full-time. Yocum's works range from Duchamp-esque sculptural installations and minimal paper pieces, to large, immersive canvas works. Yocum lives and works in Nashville, Tennessee.
Local law enforcement has deemed Daniel Yocum, "Nashville's very own pink wig, street, punk prophet." Daniel takes a hip-hop approach to pop art by sampling wheat-pasted images of dollhouses and celebrities, accompanied by bursts of vivid colors and lurking marks of black lettering.
