BIOGRAPHY

 

Born into a country at war with itself, artist Daniel Winn has lived a life of contrasts. His family, once among the wealthiest in Vietnam, was evacuated to the United States when Saigon fell on April 30, 1975 with little more than the clothes they were wearing. Winn, merely nine years old at the time, found himself in a strange new land with no knowledge of the language or culture. A bright, inquisitive child, Winn applied himself and by the age of 12 was a top student winning regional spelling bees and actually skipping a grade in elementary school. Despite having to care for his younger brother while his parents pursued their own college educations during the day and worked full-time menial labor jobs at night, Winn maintained his academic excellence eventually entering the reconstructive surgery discipline at the University of California Irvine medical school. As with his previous endeavors, Winn excelled at medicine. Even as a pre-med student, he wrote for prominent national medical journals and tutored medical students to pay for his college tuition, But Winn's heart was not in medicine. Rather he desired to create art.

 

As far back as his early childhood in Vietnam, he had always sketched, sculpted and painted. Even while at UCI, Winn worked part-time at a local art supply and framing store in order to be able to buy paints, canvas and brushes. But the uncertain and economically unstable life of an artist did not fit into his family's vision of establishing themselves in their new homeland.

 

Eventually, Winn went against his family's wishes and opened a small gallery and frame shop. He worked long hours seven days a week to establish the business and within a few years had lucrative framing contracts with nationally recognized artists and agents. He leveraged that success and established high-end galleries in Newport Beach and Laguna Beach, California. Winn began helping other artists develop their artistic style and sell their work and in 1997 founded Masterpiece Publishing, Inc. Which would become one of the nation's leading fine art agencies.

 

Winn's keen artistic eye, affable personality and strong work ethic served him well in bringing dozens of obscure and unknown artists (including M.L. Snowden, N. Tuan, Ira Reines and André Desjardins) to national and international prominence. Acting as agent and curator, he guided, influenced and collaborated with those artists to create collections which are widely recognized for their creativity, originality and quality. He curated museum and gallery exhibitions throughout North America and Asia, in cities including New York. Los Angeles, Toronto, Montreal, Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

 

In 2009, The Asian Business Association of Orange County, California USA  recognized curator Daniel Winn as one of the top Asian entrepreneurs of the year for his outstanding work in the fine arts industry. In addition to recognition within the tine arts industry, Winn's accomplishments have been recognized by Senators and Assembly Members of the California legislature. 

 

But those successes had a cost for Winn who was unable to devote time to creating his own artwork. He promised himself that he would return to it one day, eventually setting the age of 50 as the time at which he would do so. Thus in 2016, Winn returned to his canvas and brushes and began to create again in a style he termed "Existential Surrealism".
