Daniel O'Neill is a multimedia artist born and raised in Providence RI. He has exhibited in the U.S. and Europe in museums, galleries, alternative spaces and outdoor public settings. O'Neill recently spent several years in Rome, Italy researching how artists have used mosaic, fresco and sculpture to create narrative and propaganda. His work takes inspiration from the long history of images built into architecture to project the power of state and religious entities. This research led to video installations, murals and other public art projects.
O’Neill teaches Video Art, Digital Art, 4D Animation & Design, Painting and Drawing. He is the Director of the Knight Campus Gallery.
Before arriving at CCRI, O’Neill coordinated the Digital Fabrication program at Roger
Williams University School of Architecture. He has served as Studio Director to artist
Joseph Kosuth and studio assistant to Howard Ben Tre, Ursula von Rydingsvard, Arturo
Herrera and Baldo Diodato. Previous experience also includes designing and fabricating
exhibits at the Bronx Zoo.
