Biography of Daniel Soares
Daniel Soares was born in Kingston Upon Thames, United Kingdom in 1991. Tragically he hasn't yet become a full time artist despite being extremely talented hes just part time that and part time waiter.
Actually since graduating from UCA in 2015 he's spent much of his time in the studio working away at things and thinking about art. He's had a few small exhibitions and has been desperately trying to figure out how to become a successful artist.
So in 2015 he was going to do anything he could to reach that goal. He's read book after book on art marketing, art galleries and other successful artists and after a few disastrous attempts at making fast cash online, and begging galleries to buy his work he decided he had to create a decent website and promote himself... by himself!
I've learned a thing or two since graduation despite it being an incredibly miserable period of my life having very little time or resources to make art and ruining all my relationships due to my stubborn commitment to art, I've been incredibly dysfunctional barely able to maintain a job and being a complete financial scourge on my parents.
Despite all this, there has been some light. I've straightened my mind out, and (I think) I've come up with a good idea...
