Daniel McDonald is a deaf First Nations LGBTQI artist.
Although Western Desert dot techniques inspire him, Daniel paints with an eye to his coastal NSW and inner Sydney origins to tell his own story.
In this special Flinders Street Gallery exhibition for Sydney World Pride, McDonald fuses traditional culture and painting techniques with contemporary iconography, colours and concepts. In Daniel's own distinctive style, the exhibition seeks to draw harmonious connections between diverse orientations and identities.
"I hope Nexus will be a place for all people to feel at peace when they see my artwork. I want to raise awareness of diverse cultures and people to see my story and think about their own." – Daniel McDonald
