Daniel Leighton has been selected by the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art as the first place winner in the 2015 LACDA International Juried Competition. Following his win, Daniel was awarded a solo show, which will take place in Downtown Los Angeles on Thursday, March 12th (Art Walk night) at the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art.

Daniel Leighton is a Los Angeles- based contemporary artist whose work tells stories of captured emotions. He uses cutting edge technology to create art that delves into the deepest parts of the human psyche. Art critic Shana Nys Dambrot calls Daniel’s paintings “luminous” with “a quality of rawness and intensity that is both visual and emotional.” Leighton’s “Augmented Reality” work has been gaining popularity and was selected by Timothy Potts, Director of the J. Getty Paul Getty Museum, for the POP ÜBER ALLES Show at the L.A. Art Association/Gallery 825, and was featured by Mat Gleason in the Coagula Curatorial Video Lounge at Art Basel in Miami in 2014. Leighton’s first solo show, “Opening Up” was held in 2013 at WAAS Gallery in Dallas. His following solo show, “Permission To Enter,” was held on October 17, 2015 at the L.A. Art Association/Gallery 825 in Los Angeles.  Daniel Leighton is also a featured blogger for The Huffington Post.
