“Mystical, magical and meticulously executed, Daniel Ferlan’s canvases are claustophobically packed with tiny marvels of surreal fantasy”, said Kaizaad Kotwal. Daniel’s work is most often compared to that of Hiernoymus Bosch (1450’s-1516). Work from all phases of Daniel’s career will be included in the exhibition. A large portion will be from Thomas Wagner’s collection as well as borrowed work from other collectors.
