About

Danny Simmons says,: My work has been dubbed neo African Abstract expressionism. Taking from the influences of modern art and indigenous art from many cultures but primarily African body painting and textile. It relates also in spirit to the freeform of beat poetry. FROM WIKIPEDIA: Daniel "Danny" Simmons Jr. is a neo-African abstract expressionist painter, father of Jamel Simmons (Creator of horrorcore and a designer), and the older brother of hip-hop impresario Russell Simmons and rapper Joseph Simmons ("Reverend Run" of Run–D.M.C.). He is the co-founder and Chairman of Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation (since 1995), which provides disadvantaged urban youth with arts access and education.[1] As part of Rush Philanthropic, Simmons also founded Rush Arts Gallery and soon thereafter converted part of his loft in Brooklyn into the Corridor Gallery. Both galleries provide exhibition opportunities to early and mid-career artists who do not have commercial representation through galleries or private dealers. Along with his brother Russell, Simmons established Def Poetry Jam, which has enjoyed long-running success on HBO.[2] In 2004, Simmons published Three Days As the Crow Flies, a fictional account of the 1980s New York art scene. He has also written a book of artwork and poetry called I Dreamed My People Were Calling But I Couldn't Find My Way Home. He has also published " Deep in your best reflection" and "the Brown beatnik tomes", two additional volumes of poetry. In 2015 Simmons moved to Philadelphia and opened Rush Arts Philadelphia gallery ( RAP ) to further the Rush Arts mission and to begin to create a national presence for the service organization .
