Daniel Ostrov is an artist living and working in Philadelphia, PA. He specializes in hanging sculptures and lighting fixtures created from steam-bent wood, glass, and various mixed media. These static and kinetic pieces are lightweight, yet have the ability to occupy large settings, creating an interaction with the viewer through movement and space. Additionally, Ostrov has worked with the Mural Arts Program in Philadelphia to create architectural installations and murals. He has extensive experience working through all facets of project execution from conception to completion.
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
