About Ion vincent DAnu

I am a Canadian visual artist, born in Sibiu, Transylvania, Romania. I loved to draw as an infant and between 14 and 18 I was an 'apprentice artist' at the Art High School in Sibiu. Then life took over and for about 20 + years art was just an occasional delight... I've returned to my first love, drawing, painting, in Sherbrooke, Quebec, were I've immigrated with my family in the nineties. Since 2003, I'm a full-time professional artist...

I paint mostly in watercolor and acrylics but I cannot stop myself experimenting with all kinds of other themes, materials and styles (The art dealers say this is not good but what the heck!?)

I've learned to take pictures since I was 11-12 years old and a camera is always somewhere near. I use photography as an art in itself and also as an auxiliary source of inspiration and documentation for my drawings and paintings. Recently, I've started to work in the fascinating field of digital art.

Writing is a complementary mean to express myself (and, as Graham Greene, put it once: a therapy.) Being an admirer of Vincent van Gogh I founded a blog called: 'Van Gogh and I' (see at

In fact, what Graham Greene said about writing (and art creating in general) is essential for me too:

'Writing is a form of therapy; sometimes I wonder how all those who do not write, compose or PAINT can manage to escape the madness, the melancholia, the panic fear which is inherent in the human situation. Auden noted: 'Man needs escape as he needs food and deep sleep.'

So Far, So Good...

Sherbrooke, Qc - August 22nd, 2014

As the one falling from the 50 th floor and saying to himself when he was about the 25th floor, I live day by day, moment by moment and say to myself, so far, so goo... Even if I abhor the present medical establishment and his methods, I have to recognize that, sometimes, one cannot avoid it, especially when emergency situations occur...I was recently operated for a "incarcerated umbilical hernia" and the operation went well. But the aftermath was kind of depressing and I had to get out of there as soon as possible since the hospital "food" (when I was allowed to eat something other than antibiotics...) was horrible (and I'm not a caviar and champagne kind of guy...a fresh fruit, a banana would have made my day...) and, having no private assurances, I was in a room with a 400 lbs woman (who have to be transferred from her bad to a wheelchair by 4 nurses, mostly to be able to smoke som...

Dead Doctors Dont Lie

Sherbrooke, Qc - May 3rd, 2014

The title is from a Dr joel D. Wallach book (or video)... Seems that doctors die, statistically, at around 57-60 years old, a lot sooner than the "coach patatoes" (statistically), so why trust them entirely and blindly when it comes to our lives? Well, most of us are conditioned a life to do just that... So, it was not easy for me to say NO the the surgery they in a hurry programmed me for (even if I feel quite ok and my cancer seems to be stabilized...I've started to paint and draw again...). But I did, even if most of my friends said I was crazy... Well, now, artists are a bit crazy, aren't they? (at least a little bit...) So, instead of lying "gutted like a trout" on an operation table and then for 2 months (if everything went ok and they wouldn't forget a scalpel or some gauze in your belly...) lying in bed with a caca-bag (yes, those details got me disgusted and taken abac...
