Daniel creates artwork to publicize the stories of those that are easily overlooked: where there has become a minority within a minority group. As a result of heavy media coverage about the Latinx community regarding poverty and immigration issues, the narratives of those who are middle class and/or American born, are easily overlooked. His work describes the story of himself and others like him- those who do not fit into either group completely, and inhabit a gray area. His most recent work explores conflict in self-identification and speaks to the complex narratives present in the current Latinx-American identity.
