Daniel Popper is a multidisciplinary artist known globally for his remarkable public art installations and massive sculptures that look like they’ve come from another world. On many of his projects, he collaborates with other artists and tech gurus to incorporate LED lighting, project mapping, and electronic music, transforming his work into something else at night.
He gained his popularity very quickly with his Burning Man model for the AfrikaBurn festival, which was the most memorable and exciting part of the event. After that, he was commissioned to create 14 giant Pop Puppets for MTN that were enjoyed by thousands of fans at the official Fifa Fan Parks.
He created a life-size baobab tree for Siemens, made of pallet wood and steel, and featured 6000 LED lights powered from 17 bicycles. In a second project for Siemens, he created the 14-meters-tall Tree of Wisdom that became a permanent icon for the Nelson Mandela School.
Another spectacular sculpture is Ven a la Luz (come into the light), formed into a female figure that appears to grow out of the earth and let people walk through her path filled with lush green plants.
His latest beautiful artwork is Anima, which is exhibited in a vibrant glass garden in Las Vegas.
