The Studio Sessions: Dan Lane

It's hard to believe that Dan Lane has only been on the contemporary art scene since 2014. After being persuaded by his friends and family to go public, the former engineer featured in a range of local and national newspapers, magazines and TV programmes - including BBC News. Behind the intricate sculptures was a moniker: Mechanica. Now with an extensive portfolio and his own distinct style, the artist revealed to Fine Art Collector why he's ready to be known as Dan Lane. 

"When I first started creating sculptures, I tried to distance myself personally from the work," he explains. "I didn't have the confidence to stand next to my art and say 'I created that'. Over the last few years, I've met hundreds of people and collectors who have supported my work, and more importantly given me the confidence to put my name to my art...Dan Lane, I created that!"
