London

The London beauty is an amalgam of cultures yet distinctly English. Hard to read yet easy to understand. In public she is tolerant, open minded, never looses her wit. Privately she cherishes her heritage, her cultural pedigree, faithfully follows “the done thing”… Hypocrite or Queen of emotions?

Certain middle aged beauties find it hard to conquer a place in society.  Unaware of the futile battle against the looks of women decades younger, they gradually develop a parody image of their lost youth.  Too intelligent, too independent, too demanding, too discerning, too self-absorbed and too needy makes them unattractive to men and friends… who cannot but wonder how all this will end?

The Maltese beauty lies within the mixture of centuries of wars and colonisation. Her curved features and traits are a blend of ancient Egypt, Turkey and more recent French and English influences. Devoutly catholic, her culture retains the highest values of both Arabian and Christian philosophies. Without a single doubt her family comes first and foremost. On the surface she stands behind her husband but fundamentally she is the core member of the family and she knows it. She loves and takes great pride in her multiple roles as wife, mother and daughter. This power makes her feel and look both sensual and irresistible. The cigarette depicts her independence and power. Lastly, Maltese women have amazing hair. Her weekly trip to the salon is her way of saying “I love being a woman in today’s men’s world!”

Opposites attract and therefore can only exist because they are opposites. If we remove one, the other looses it’s significance. Can we face the dark side of our Goodness? Dare we to acknowledge the hypocrisy? Only then can the Good we do stand alone and become significant.

Superficiality is the new Reality. Why does contemporary society feel the need put up this constructed front? Is the real you so questionable? Is your life so mundane? Or is this just another twisted political means to keep the herds within closely fenced boundaries…

Every year Hong Kong turns into a French cultural mega center during Le French May.  Selected artists get to showcase their work in unconventional spaces.  It was SO SO SO wicked to see my paintings covering the front of the one and only Alan Zeman California Tower in the party center of Lan Kwai Fong.  We exhibited in Alan’s penthouse office which is probably the coolest office on the planet.   Thank you once again Hong Kong for welcoming me onto your art scene !

Stephen Hung office and my painting! Casino Man by Fox Daniels Art

To see one of my paintings hanging behind the desk of this celebrity billionaire and ueber famous Hong Kong entrepreneur is probably the most rewarding part in my artist career.  Stephen Hung is renowned for his flamboyant and trendsetting style.  We had it framed in his signature  baroque style floater frame which works incredibly well with contemporary art.  Most galleries would not dare to use such a contrasting frame.  So proud to be in this office where success in business are part of the top of the world !

How art shows can make a difference.  Months of preparation and monastic studio work on display.  The best time in an artist life is to experience when the paintings comes out of the studio and into the limelight and buzz of an exhibition.  Here at the Hong Kong art fair.  The gallery sold 8 in one day !  Talking to Asian art lovers is the most refreshing experience.  No fancy art talk here. I pretended not to be the artist to get a sincere review. It’s just fantastic to hear how they perceive a painting.  The best feeling ever.  Thank you for welcoming me Hong Kong and China !

Hollywood attracts the ones who excel in all the shimmering superficialities of life. Hollywood’s façade is a melting pot of the bold and the beautiful. For many are called, but few are chosen. The intense paranoia of maintaining that tiny lucid spot in the limelight is fascinating. The ones who die young remain glorious, the ones who last inevitably become parodies of themselves.

This exclusive little tax haven and testosterone paradise attracts the most beautiful women and the richest men on the planet. The Grand Prix is also the highlight of the society scene yet ironically the Monaco women do look rather out of place. Shopping is not always a justifiable alternative or is it?

Art Painting Art Man portrait Jay Jopling of Men of Influence series by glamour artist Fox Daniels

Inspired by the likes of Jay Jopling. Art Man is inspired by the men and women of both extremes within the art establishment. The ones who have flair, love art and make a difference, and the ones who don’t.

Art Man decides what art you are going to like and should invest in. He is the bona fide Gertrude Stein of the contemporary art world. A rare species among the prima donnas, clowns, pretend intellectuals and fools who have no affinity with art for the sake of art yet who, alas, crowd the industry because there is money to be made. Lot’s of it. The hands reaching out on serving platters signify artists reaching out to such influential men and women who genuinely love and respect art for what it is. The only significant trace of humankind we leave behind on this earth. Are you able to discern the Art Man from the Art con-man?

Many successful women excel in one, or in some cases several, of these attributes : Beauty, Talent, Ambition, Intelligence, Wealth and Luck. But only the “Chosen One” reigns supreme in all. She is deeply envied by her sycophantic friends and followers, but she understands that nothing lasts forever and is aware of her fragile, singular position at the top. Her closest companions are her thoughts : who will be the one to betray her, who will be the one to take her position? Will this be her Last Supper in glory?

Seduction can play a big part in making it to the top. Trophy-girls are masters in the game of seduction. They understand the effect virginity has on their target. Careful controversy is key to success. Fragile mistress, delicate empress, innocent insouciance all aid in her manipulation every step of the way. Did anything change since Marie-Antoinette?

No matter how liberated and independent a woman is, if her man treats her right she will allow him to manipulate her for good or evil.  If her man makes her feel special she will be all his for good or for evil.   But be careful gentlemen, if you treat her badly, she will leave your protective arms in a flash.
