We would like to congratulate an honorable mention of the People and Portraits competition, Dan Pyle. Below are the images he submitted. To view them in detail, click an image below. Also, take a moment to learn a little bit about Dan by reading his statement below.


Working exclusively in charcoal, Dan uses a realistic style that mimics photography to the point that his work is often mistaken for photos. He loves shadows, contrast, anonymity & using negative space in his compositions. His gifted eye catches timeless “fragments” of life in his work----- whether it’s the intricate lines of the human hand, or the delicate folds of a garment, they are drawn in detailed simplicity. The mystery of his work lets the viewer use their imagination to interpret the meaning behind each compelling image.

With virtually no formal art training, Dan has been drawing since childhood. Throughout the years, he has displayed his work in local art shows, accepted private commissions, and his work has been selected for the cover of a local publication. More recently, he has had shows in Palm Springs, Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Hollywood, Santa Ana, Long Beach, Pasadena & New York, and has been a featured artist in the Walk of Art & Design in West Hollywood. Dan has also begun cultivating international clients in Canada and as far away as Malaysia. 23 pieces of his drawings have been permanently installed in the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas, as part of their impressive, permanent commercial art collection. Dan has won domestic & international awards for his work and continues to expand his market and challenge himself.

Dan’s work intimately reflects his simple, independent spirit and his relentless enthusiasm for detail. His current collections encompass isolated pieces of serenity, emotion & appreciation for the human body, as well as his view of everyday objects.
