Born and raised on Long Island, New York, where he currently resides. Daniel began portraying everyday life from the perspective of a passer-by, witnessing one of life’s intimate moments. This inevitably led to, an almost, visual biography of his life. The work began to depict scenes of his past, not as it may have happened, but more as it was remembered- a snapshot, not of a particular moment but of an overall memory. As the work developed, Mr. Del Orfano began using more and more symbolic imagery. The imagery, though subtle at times, gives a background story to the piece while adding additional subtext.
