Daniel Rolnik is a writer based in Los Angeles. His career started when he handed an old band’s flyer to a girl named Pocahontas, who for no particular reason invited him to write for a new magazine called LA Record. Since then, he’s gone on to interview some of the raddest artists in the world for websites like FecalFace and Argot & Ochre. And now he is also a contributing writer to publications like LA Weekly, Hi Fructose, Beautiful/Decay, CARTWHEEL, Bulkka, Hurley, Reserve Result, etc… If you ever hear “Hi, I’m Daniel” at an art opening, then just know that he’s probably near.

In addition to writing about art, Daniel co-owns the publishing company Intellectual Property Prints, runs the YouTube channel For The Funk of It, and writes webisodes for the artist interview series Underpainting.

Recent lectures have included talks at LACMA, Azuza Pacific University, OTIS College of Art & Design, Amanda Harris Gallery, ToyBreak, Gabba Gallery, Giant Robot Gallery, California State University Stanislaus, The Compound Gallery & Studios, and Flower Pepper Gallery.
