Dan Lane aka Mechanica
An assemblage artist from Kent with a liking for all things mechanical, intricate and unusual, Dan Lane aka Mechanica creates sculptures with a dark yet beautiful take on natural forms by mechanical intervention; an industrial version of life.
Having worked as an engineer for fifteen years, Dan Lane began creating sculptures as a hobby three years ago. After being persuaded by family and friends, he went public with his artwork in April 2014, to an overwhelming response. In this short time he has been featured in a range of local and national newspapers, magazines and blogs, and even on the BBC 6 o'clock news. In August, he was selected to take part in the Summer Exhibition at Castle Fine Art in Mayfair, and was subsequently signed to Washington Green Fine Art Publishing.
