Eccentric Danny

Hopoffthis.Com got the opportunity to interview Detroit’s own Eccentric Danny, one of the hottest artist in the city! Talk about art that will blow your mind, this man has a creative passion for colors, textures and an all around vision that he wants the world to understand. Daniel Geanes also knows as Eccentric Danny of simply ” Danny” has impressed the art world beyond belief.
 “I realized I had a passion for art I want to say back in early 2012, when I was doing random designs and talking to Adidas via email and twitter. I believe God gives everybody a purpose in life and its our obligation to find what it is. I believe I’ve been gifted to reach out to people through my art but my main purpose is to help others and I’ll use my gift as a bridge to do just that.”
Now speaking of his artwork, Hopoffthis.Com wanted to know the detail about his most proud piece and the response was incredibly inspiring,eccentricdanny “I have a great deal of love for every art piece I’ve done so it is hard to say what my most proud piece is.  One that does stick out to me is this piece where I have this character I created standing at attention fully naked showing vulnerability with her head held high with destruction all around her because it has so much meaning to it. You can look at it and see so much from the picture and I love that. I try to show emotion in my characters faces and body posture no matter if its abstract or representational.”
If anyone celebrity  in the world could personally request you to do a piece art, who would you want it to be and why?
“I love how Swizz Beatz is a huge art head so I would love to do a request from him but my biggest inspiration is still Dwayne (Lil’ Wayne) Carter. I love how his methods are and how he carried himself in the past and still does. If he wants something he goes out and does it and doesn’t look back. He’s very versatile and is always trying to better himself. I remember he said the studio and music is his life to others that is their JOB! I believe that the main reason celebrities go “crazy” or suicidal is because they cross that path where they are not doing what they are passionate about for the love but they are rather now doing it for their fans and/or to stay relevant which brings stress and turns it into a job.”
 Who is your support system and what keeps you going?
“My biggest support system I would say has to be my G4E comrades and the people of Enjoy Detroit! I love all my fans and believers to the fullest. God and the people around me is what keeps me going. I am a very spiritual person and believe nothing is possible without God. I cannot say that my haters are my motivators because I never pay mind to people who hate because I’m so busy thanking God, working, and paying attention to those that love.”
 Can you tell me about your affiliation with G4E?
“Far as my affiliation with G4E let me start off with its meaning. G4E stands for Grind For Everything and is a group for those who feel they should make efforts to change their life rather than sitting at home playing the lottery, doing credit card scams, or just plain settling for less. I am a visual artist in the group and two of the other main members are rappers LouiseMaC and Grizzy.”
After speaking with Danny, he really wanted to make sure his supports and fans know how much he appreciates their support, “
“I would love to say thanks to Adidas, Enjoy Detroit, Mook, Dave, Josh, Dennis, Kelvin (LouiseMac), Ant (Grizzy), Caprina the owner of Stoning Sensations, MelodiAmore, the Loud Brand family, DJBJ, RJ Lamont, RedWingWhiteBoi, MUA Chrissy Ashtonn and LAN of LSD everyone that I featured in an art piece, everyone that bought an art piece, everyone that ACKNOWLEDGED my art… You are all appreciated! I believe I can change hearts and show people what faith and hard work entails and what can come from it. I am not sin-free but i am a product of faith and just like the bible we all have our own testimonies.”
 
I hope you guys have a new appreciation for art! Hopoffthis.Com supports Eccentric Danny 100 percent.  Make sure you check him out:
