Romanian artist Dan Colcer was born in Hunedoara/Transylvania. Alumni of the school of Arts in Cluj-Napoca/Transylvania and Cairo University in Egypt, Colcer pursued his artistic vision and over time, developed a specific and unique style, a juxtaposition of color and line. Dan moved in 2006 to the United States, entering into Chicago shortly after where he participated in the Around the Coyote annual art events as well as other gallery art shows in the city. He has lived in Dallas for the last 7 years, and has done work to help beautify the Deep Ellum neighborhood including the Shed Mural at the Deep Ellum Urban Gardens, the Pillars Park and Art Park, as well as several of the art covered planter boxes in the area. Dan participates in many local art festivals and live art events, and gallery art-shows. He and his wife were part of the international Cool Globes project in its first year in Chicago's Grant Park. Their piece was finally installed permanently in Jerusalem. He worked with 2 other artists to create a time capsule mural on a cross-highway beam under Klyde Warren Park in 2010. In 2014 he was one of the finalists in the Tunnel Vision mural project. A large collection of his works can be found at The Omni Dallas Convention Center Hotel, as well as in public and private collections throughout the world.
