Uprise West: Paintings by Dan Covert
A Song About Life, Death, Love, Hate, Wealth, Poverty

Gallery Opening with food, drinks & music in traditional Midway fashion!

Dan Covert will transform The Midway Gallery using his graphic language of organic and decisive forms, methodically applied directly to gallery walls. Dan's painting practice is a paradoxical exercise of using analog means to pursue a perfection that, in reality, can only be obtained with digital or mechanical processes. 

Join us on Friday, 08/17 to snack, drink, and dance within Covert's site-specific mural. Browse his smaller works available for purchase, chat with art lovers, foodies, and revelers alike.


Uprise West: In this series of bi-coastal collaborations, Uprise Art and The Midway Gallery come together to create a platform for artists to cross disciplines, expand their processes, and create large-scale installations that reach a diverse audience.

Dan Covert
Dan Covert is an artist and award-winning director who lives in Brooklyn, NY. He grew up in Ohio and narrowly avoided an alternate existence at West Point by studying graphic design at CCA in San Francisco before co-founding Dress Code, a production company, in 2007 with Andre Andreev. As he transitioned from working as a graphic designer to directing commercials, Dan began to experiment with painting and woodworking as a way to reconnect with making. Since then Dan has developed a reputation as a painter and exhibited worldwide. He enjoys the balance and contrast that comes from directing large crews on set, then coming back to his studio to create in the more solitary environment. Dan uses his work as an outlet for OCD tendencies, that in any other context might not be as tolerable.
