Danny Ferland

About The Teacher

Danny Ferland was born in 1975 in Quebec City, Quebec. He was self taught for many years before discovering the magnificence of figurative art during a European trip in 2002. Seeing the historical artworks in countless museums is what made him realize the utmost importance of genuine academic training. In 2008 he moved to New York city after being accepted into the Janus Collaborative school of art. The curriculum was based on working exclusively from the live model. After months of dedication, he realized that his main interest lay in portraiture, one of the most complex and demanding forms of art.

“I am trying to establish a subtle bridge between myself and the model, one that is built with trust and generosity. Moreover, this connection enables me to extract a beauty, a story and a spirit that is unique to every subject. If I can convey even a small part of this truth, I know that it will trigger a memory that is lost somewhere in the poetry of the human experience.”

Danny Ferland now lives and paint in Paris. He is also teaching in the core program at the Paris Academy Of Art.
