Daniel Durnin is an Artist and Designer based in London. Having completed an MA at the Royal College of Art in Design Products he has recently graduated from Oxford University's Ruskin School of Art with an MFA.

Durnin's practise is driven by his interests in the self and the relationship with our environment . Art is a catalyst for turning theoretical ideas into a reality. Not confined to galleries and museums his practise engages with a broader public sphere through momentary installations and experiences.  

Durnin's art questions our very notions of ownership, authority and community allowing for momentary redefinitions of our current society.
