Take Five with Daniel Wallis

Daniel Wallis is a visual artist with a particular interest in how artists reference each other.  He also runs projects for various museums, galleries and arts organisations with groups of all ages, helping them to find ways to access and make sense of the art on display.  

Daniel is also a musician with The Clap, The World's greatest Rock cover band - featuring a stylophone and ukulele.  (Catch their version of “Firestarter” on YouTube.)     

In your professional life, what is the single best thing about what you do? 
Having in depth discussions with a wide range of people about the things I really love. Second to that is talking to people about the things I hate.   

Do you have a creative hero / heroine and if so, why? 
I’m a bit fickle and seem to keep finding new heroes or people who inspire me as I constantly explore new avenues and directions to move my own creativity in. No one seems to stick long term, except perhaps Ginger, the incredibly prolific and versatile songwriter, guitarist and singer (from The Wildhearts amongst other bands) who consistently moves his song writing styles around, collaborates with different people and brings me plenty of joy via his ability to write songs that feel like they have been written about the things going on in my head.   

What piece of advice do you wish you had been given at the beginning of your career? 
Not everyone has the same standards as you, but as long as yours are high everything you do will have integrity.   

If you hit a creative block, what is your top tip for getting through it? 
Look back at the things and people you find creative and spend some time enjoying them again.   

And finally, for fun, if you were a shoe, what type of shoe would you be and why? 
A trainer. A brightly coloured trainer. A brightly coloured trainer that doesn’t really match my clothes. Or a snowboard boot.
