Daniel Heyman is a painter and printmaker. His work has recently been exhibited in major institutions nationwide including The Baltimore Museum of Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and the New York Public Library.
From 2004 to 2009, Heyman concentrated his art on making images about the war in Iraq, specifically the abuse and torture of Iraqis at Abu Ghraib. Traveling to Turkey and Istanbul, he met over 50 former Iraqi detainees and drew their portraits surrounding their faces with the words of their own testimony. Using a similar approach he worked with survivors of the 2007 Blackwater USA attacks at Nisour Square in Baghdad; homeless veterans; and veteran survivors of military sexual assault. Since 2009 he has concentrated on creating a series of grand scale prints, printing on non-traditional materials such as plywood and plaster. A recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and a Pew Fellowship in the Arts, Heyman’s work has been reviewed in The Los Angeles Times, New York Times; Art in America, The Boston Globe, Philadelphia Inquirer and the Chicago Tribune. His work is represented in the collections of numerous museums including the Getty Research Institute; Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth; Library of Congress; New York Public Library; Philadelphia Museum of Art; Princeton University Museum of Art; Yale University Art Gallery and many other fine institutions. A graduate of Dartmouth College (AB 1985) and the University of Pennsylvania (MFA 1991), Heyman currently teaches at Rhode Island School of Design, Princeton University, University of the Arts, and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Daniel Heyman is represented by Cade Tompkins Projects.
