About

Daniel Breda is a painter, virtual reality artist and musician based in Wollongong, NSW. He completed his MFA at The National Art School in 2016 and has since developed a multi-disciplinary approach to art making. Breda’s practice began with psychedelic and abstract painting that he executed with vibrant synthetic colour. His artist practice has expanded and now applies his colourist perspective to painting installations, VR painting, VR app development and videography. His advocacy of art in VR has seen him provide tilt brush tutorials and has pushed the painting installation app to be showcased at multiple VR events in Australia and abroad. When he’s not making art he’s most often seen gallivanting around the Australian East Coast singing with Wollongong punk band Hoon.
