Daniel Heidkamp

Daniel Heidkamp

Daniel Heidkamp (born 1980, Wakefield, MA) lives and works in New York. He received his BFA from School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA in 2003. Following his acclaimed 2014 exhibition at White Columns in New York, ‘Art in America’ drew a comparison between his work and the Barbizon school of painting, the movement for realism in 1800’s France. For his followup exhibition, Heidkamp travelled to France to dig deeper and explore that history, traveling to the same scenes, landscapes in Barbizon, painting ‘en plein air’, and showing those works back in New York at his Half Gallery exhibition, Barbizon Beauty School.

Heidkamp’s work was included in the exhibition “Painter’s Journey” at The Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art in New York. He has mounted solo exhibitions including: Half Gallery, New York; Loyal Gallery, Stockholm; Pace Prints, New York; White Columns, New York; The Journal Gallery, New York. Group exhibitions include Derek Eller Gallery, New York; Brand New Gallery, Milan; Wilkinson Gallery, London; Marlborough Chelsea, New York; The Journal Gallery, New York; Jack Hanley Gallery, New York.
