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.
