The artist attended the University of Potsdam in Germany, Animation department, and graduated in 2006. At the age of 12, Daniel decided that he wanted to be an artist. He started his artistic career in the world of street art, and later on, expanded into other disciplines. He works in diverse media, from canvas to video projects, from mixed-media to installations.

Weissbach’s art focuses on notions of time, momentum and eternity. In Stellen, one of his series, the artist presents the things that escape our perception on a daily basis and invites the viewers to question their environment and have a closer look at its surroundings. Weissbach creates his works using objects which comprise our environment, but usually go unnoticed and gives them more significance.
