Viewpoints Gallery Maui is proud to present “Hawai’i Contemporary 2020,” an exhibition by Danielle Nelisse, on display from 27 February 2020 to 16 April 2020 in Makawao, Maui, Hawaii.
“Bamboo Passage” presents a new series of work inspired by Hawaiian landscapes. In the past, Nelisse's abstractions drew inspiration from the colorful streets of Havana, Italian graffiti of Rome, and holiday escapes to tropical Puerto Vallarta. But now the vibrant colors, graphic lines, and texture displayed in her artwork are in sync with the Hawaiian islands in the Pacific Ocean.
Danielle Nelisse was born in Michigan, USA and graduated with a Bachelor’s of Arts and a Juris Doctorate in law. As a law student Nelisse studied abroad in Europe. Even though one of her law professors was US Supreme Court Justice Scalia, every moment she could, she spent in a European art museum studying art masterpieces.
In addition to exhibiting internationally, Nelisse's artwork has been exhibited by Fortune 500 companies and is sold as wallpaper and murals by two companies in the United Kingdom. The University of Melbourne and University of Western Australia also obtained three of Nelisse's artworks for their permanent collection and to promote academic research. Most recently, her artwork is exhibited by the US Embassy in Bahrain and at the Schaefer International Gallery in Maui, Hawaii.
