Daniel Monfort Gil
Daniel Monfort Gil — Born in Barcelona, Monfort (b. 1974) studied at the Llotja Advanced School of Art and Design (Escola Superior de Disseny i d’Arts Llotja or ESDA Llotja, est. 1715), the oldest school of design in Spain. He graduated after three years focusing on painting, sculpture, photography and illustration, plus two years devoted to graphic design. His work ranges from designing watches to creating corporate identities, painting in oil and painting on glass –an old technique he has reinterpreted. He is fascinated by urban life and urbanites, and his early paintings reflect city life in Barcelona.
After repeated trips to Thailand, he made Bangkok his home in 2009,and the Thai capital has since inspired a new collection of paintings on glass, exhibited for the very first time in 2014 at Serindia Gallery, Bangkok
