Education

Daniel Mirante completed a Bachelors with Honors Fine Art Degree at Manchester Metropolitan University, where he studied conceptual and installation art. After his degree he developed an interest in the painter’s tradition.

In 2012 Mirante studied mischtechnik in Vienna with Ernst Fuchs (founder of The Vienna School of Fantastic Realism and teacher of two noted artists of psychedelia, Mati Klarwein and Robert Venosa).

Daniel was the master’s last apprentice. Later, he studied with Timea Tallian, a painting restorer and conservator at the Victoria and Albert Museum. This gave him footing in traditional old masters techniques, whilst embracing new technologies as tools of expressing creativity. To additionally supplement his understanding of classical methods, he studied academic sight-size method at the London Atelier of Representational Art.

Teaching

Daniel believes the circle is complete when experience is transmitted to the next generation. His teaching style is highly regarded by his contemporaries and students. He has taught at the Tobias School of Art Therapy UK where he sought to create linkages between Steiner School style art education and Visionary Art.

He is a founding faculty member and teacher (alongside contemporaries such as Laurence Caruana, Amanda Sage, Kuba Ambrose) with The Vienna Academy of Visionary Art, teaches at the Visions in the Mischtechnik seminars in Italy, pioneered visionary art workshops in Australia, and most recently held workshops with Ainhoa Neith with Visionary Art India.

His work focusses on a deep study of the Quattrocento period of the Italian Renaissance, especially upon artists such as Andrea Mantegna and Giovanni Bellini, who bridged the heiratic (sacred or religious) with humanistic styles of art. He is interested in the esoteric language of symbols as found in ancient art and spiritual lineages, and their application in painting as a visual language that can articulate pictorially the various historical and archetypal forces that have shaped the contemporary world.
