About The Artist – Paint With Gunpowder

About The Artist

Danny Shervin is a painter based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. He was born and raised in Jackson and grew up with the Grand Tetons in his backyard.

Growing up in Wyoming provided an incredible background to fuel his passion for art. He stumbled upon painting with gunpowder in college at the University of Montana in Bozeman and started experimenting with it later down the road.

His medium of choice is gunpowder and acrylic paint. He is best known for his wildlife gunpowder paintings on canvas and wood. Each painting is one of a kind and takes hours upon hours to get each and every detail set in place before burning it at the very end.

His work has been featured in the September/October 2015 issue of Mountain Living, at the Jackson Salon Show and Whodunnit at the Center for the Arts in Jackson Hole. He placed second at the Jackson Salon Show at the Center for the Arts in Jackson Hole.

When he is not painting, Danny enjoys spending time with his family, fishing, hiking and being outdoors.
