Hey! My name is Dan McQuade, I am a New York-based sculpture and 3 dimensional artist. My current work is focused on bringing awareness to mental health, an extremely important aspect in my life. Intrigued by the human form, I enjoy taking on the complex challenges that come with recreating the human body, always reminding myself that in the end the hard work put into creating is worth it.


With a background in practical makeup effects for film and tv, adapting our body’s to the artistic visions I possess have always held a special place within me, whether its mind, body or soul. I am well versed in the world of sculpture, whether it be ceramics, pottery, mold making or any other 3 dimensional materials. I am a firm believer of "if it exists I can learn and do it." I do not like to limit my skills to just one medium as I believe that all techniques intertwine. Not stopping with sculpture, other disciplines I am able to create in include photography, painting, and drawing.
