Royse Contemporary is excited to present "Everything Belongs to the Sun", showcasing the last painting collection of Daniel Shepherd. Inspiration for this new work was "a new beginning, our world is different than it was and I wanted to create a vibrant colorful promise of hope and tranquility."Shepherd has created a beautiful collection of minimal abstract paintings with an evocative use of color that engages the viewers senses, states  Curator, Nicole Royse.

Shepherd is a self-taught artist based in Phoenix who is creating vibrant abstract paintings and fantastic vintage collages. His work is included in private collections around the world and he has exhibited his work extensively throughout Arizona and California. Shepherd is currently represented by Royse Contemporary in Scottsdale Arizona . His work has been featured in numerous publications both online and in print including: OutVoicePhoenix, Phoenix Magazine, Visual Art Source, Arizona Foothills Magazine, Java Magazine, and Phoenix New Times.
