Daniel Mark Cassity grew up in Northeast Louisiana, graduating from Louisiana Tech in 1988, and then spent twenty years in North Carolina after attending postgraduate studies at East Carolina University. He began concentrating on still lifes around 2006, and developed his imaginative “Kingdom” concept around 2011 which continues to receive ever-increasing national – and international – attention. A few mentionables from Cassity’s resume include the Society of Illustrators National Scholarship Competition, The Artist’s Magazine’s Annual Art Competitions, Oil Painters of America’s National Exhibitions, the Art Renewal Center’s International Salons, and the International Guild of Realism's Annual Exhibitions. He also participated in the national museum exhibitions American Still Lifes, and the International Guild of Realism's Masterworks Museum Tour. He has also been promoted in American Art Collector, featured in Southwest Art Magazine, highlighted on the cover of Juxtaprose Literary Magazine, showcased in The Artist’s Magazine’s article “The Kingdom of the Origami Dragon Guy”, and included in Manifest’s International Painting Annual, volume 7.

Nationally and internationally collected, Cassity is also in the permanent collection of the R.W. Norton Museum of Shreveport, LA., and is represented by Gallery Central of Hot Springs, Arkansas, and Greg Thompson Fine Art of Little Rock, AR. Visit DanielMarkCassity.com for more information.  

And so with my interests as my compass, I continue to move ever forward, for from my perspective "an artist is an unstoppable force of nature – a particular genetic collision driven to produce – no matter what obstacles arise."
