Born in London in 1973, Dan Ferguson lived and worked for over 14 years as a secondary school art teacher in and around London. In 2016, he relocated to Belfast to undertake a place on the MFA in Fine Art at the University of Ulster, graduating in the summer of 2018. Dan was awarded the ArtisAnn Gallery Graduate Award for his painting, and was also long-listed for the RDS Visual Arts Award for the 2018 exhibition. He features in the RUA show 2019 and has been in several group and solo shows since 2018.
His current series of paintings have explored the disjointed memory of events, stories, family and strangers. Locations, heritage, traditions, heirlooms, perception and mystery all feature prominently.
