Daniel Rossi, “The Black Masks”, 2012

Daniel Rossi

He can be defined as a Visual Maker with an important background and a lot of interesting projects developed for clients like Philips Design, Select NY, Byplay and others. Since the completion of his Bachelor Degree in Design at the University of Alberta in Canada, he has been exploring different ways of storytelling through various mediums. From graphic novels to short films, from print to object creation, he applies his skills as an illustrator to foster collaboration and experimentation, always with the goal of building bridges, not barriers, and of always learning by being open, receptive and sensitive to his environment.

Daniel Rossi, “The Black Masks”, 2012

He has worked both alone and on collaborative projects, one in particular being the establishment of “The Drawing Machine”, created with a friend and co-worker as a platform from which to draw, make and create both commercial projects as well as self-initiated ones. Their common interest and passion was to communicate through storytelling. To this point, he has concentrated and developed goals and skills which he feels confident in describing them as those of a Visual Maker. In fact, he uses his drawing skills and illustrating talent to create graphics and objects that communicate messages and meaning through stories. This is a passion that he will continue to explore and refine, as he begins studying for a Master’s Degree in Storytelling at the Konstfack in Stockholm this year.

The Black Masks” idea is based on the fact that we wear masks to accentuate feeling and emotion. We take on different characters, becoming the embodiment of their spirit. They represent that which is mystical and powerful, yet are wearable by even the most humble of people. This is a celebration of those masks and the power they hold to transform the wearer to become the vessel of expression.

Daniel Rossi, “The Guardians”, 2011

The Guardians” is a project commissioned by online gallery Byplay. It is a series of three women inspired by Native American Aboriginal imagery. The three women are depicted as both beautiful and honest in nature. They adorn different animal headdresses which represent each ones guardian spirit, and are surrounded by symbols of his own creation that reflect their spirit and strength.

Daniel Rossi, “Feather People”, 2012

Feather People” shows a tribe of feather people. Inspired by the beauty and mystery of a walk in the forest, and all the little things there are to explore and discover.

Daniel Rossi, “Cala”, 2012

Cala” is a short story both written and illustrated in response to the question “What is Authentic”? It tells the story of a girl who as a child, and through her father’s infinite imagination and love for his daughter, was able to imagine and live in a world that unlike her surroundings, was beautiful and rich with life. It is an ode to the imagination and its power to create beauty in even the most dismal places.
