Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Daniel Planko is an artist, designer and maker whose works covers a wide range of media, scale and application.

From a series of mobile sculptures for the atrium of a children’s hospital to the staging of art happenings, to the fabrication of striking pieces of unique furniture out of at once familiar things, Planko’s work is characterized – if it can be characterized – as a marriage of the handmade and the industrially-produced, the serious and the whimsical, the familiar and the unexpected.

In seeking to have people see the world in different ways – to reinvent the everyday – his work operates in the realm of ideas, the power of community, the transformative powers of art and objects and rewards of seeing and being in the world.
