Born in León, 1968


The career of Daniel Verbis goes back to the 1990s. Since his first series and exhibitions he has conceived his work as a process of research into the material and formal procedures of painting in the first place and the problems of language in the second. Since the start of this decade his work has intensified its exploration of new behaviour in painting. His most recent work in the form of an individual exhibition at the Galería Siboney in 2016 is entitled “El animal en su laberinto: prueba caligráfica de una aparición” (The animal in its labyrinth: calligraphic proof of an apparition) and brings together a selection of drawings that he touches on in several aspects of his work such as the deconstruction of pictorial language, experimentation with extra-pictorial materials, and the questioning of the medium.
