All my work is one hand-drawn continuous line. It's a process I started when I was 10, and have developed into my own art form. See more illustrations and abstract work at www.DanielDuganArt.com.
In a small town in Alabama, a left-handed, ten year old Daniel Dugan started drawing designs out of one continuous line. With hints of the obsessive compulsive, Daniel filled pages and pages with that one continuous line in order to pass time. It became his meditation. With no formal fine arts training, this self-taught perfectionist developed his organized chaos into his very own unique form and style. With a minimalist approach, highlighted by great attention to detail, much of Daniel’s work ranges from the design-oriented to the abstract. Dugan currently lives in Los Angeles.
“I see the continuous line as the flow of life, that path that brings us so much uncertainty but so much beauty. Life is funny and disastrous, beautiful and heartbreaking, sometimes all in one day. There is a definite beginning and end, but the rest is spontaneous, unexpected, sometimes repetitive and chaotic. No matter where it goes, there is an accessible power to the line and a wisdom that comes from its unraveling.” - Daniel Dugan, Artist
