Influenced by mural artists, Daniel Pollera has become known as one of the most recognized coastal landscape artists in the nation. Pollera, a self taught artist, worked under Everett Molinari, a mural artist and head of the National Mural Society. Pollera has completed works including a 4' x 17' mural for the private collection of a bank and assisted in painting a 14' x 30' historical mural on display in the main branch of the Roslyn Savings Bank, Roslyn, New York. He was also inspired by the work of artists Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyeth. Working in oils with a warm palette on board and drawing from personal life experiences, his paintings offer crisp realism, strong moods and create an almost melancholy-like feeling. PolleraÕs original art and reproductions grace boardrooms like IBM, living rooms of celebrities and many homes of nautical landscape enthusiasts.
