Artist Bio: Daniel I. Yanez (aka Artist DIY) is a Dallas native based out of the Oak Cliff area. Growing up poor and
homeless, Daniel learned quickly how to create something from nothing. He was first recognized for his
abilities at a young age, where he was given an opportunity to take a few art classes at a local college by
his elementary school art teacher. After graduating Sunset High School in Oak Cliff in 2003, Daniel
pursued higher education at Mountain View College. That fall, he felt a whole new world had been
opened up for him. Walking into a gallery for the first time, he knew he had found what he wanted to do
and began to pursue art professionally. The first six years of his art career was comprised of working
multiple jobs, going through heartache and heartbreak of learning the business, and perfecting his
personal style. During the most difficult time of his career, he was also challenged with the duties of
being a father. From the years 2004 through the present, he has raised six children in total. Yet, this is
not even the zenith of what he has accomplished since that fall semester in college. In 2012, Daniel
opened his first art gallery in Oak Cliff named The Basement Gallery. This was soon accompanied the
year after by another gallery called The Attic. In 2018 Daniel opened Elevate DTX which provides studio
space for multiple artists and another gallery in 2021 named Cold Soda. Daniel has been celebrated
through many publications including D Magazine Home Edition, D Magazine CEO Edition, Dallas
Morning News and Time Magazine. His work is currently apart of the Dallas Mavericks collection, The
post Cereal collection, Invitation Homes Collection and the Bank of America Collection to name a few.
Daniel is currently working on works which pushes his style and use of patterns in many new forms which
include mural, installation, and most recently NFT,s. We look forward to what he will accomplish next.
