About Daniel:

"Artist of Daydreams, Poet of Night"

Daniel Ignacio (aka dkaism) is a Filipino-Canadian artist from Toronto, Canada. He has a background in photojournalism and graphic design. After graduating from the University of Toronto in 2014, while working as a graphic designer, he began his digital art journey and taught himself the ways of the digital art media. In 2018, Daniel started his freelance work as a professional artist and has been working with independent clients and partners from around the world.


Daniel is a contemporary visual artist, creator of dream worlds dipped in mystery, poetry, magic, and chaos. He explores surrealism and fantasy genres and connect them to more contemporary fiction genres such as slice-of-life, solarpunk, cyberpunk, and dark academia. He has an on-going collection of art series called Wormwood City, Garden of Bir, Forgotten Gods, and Journal of Superrealities. //
