Dan Hillier

In December 2016 Saatchi Gallery presented Ceremony: New Works by Dan Hillier. The pieces continued an exploration of ideas and themes observable in previous works. However, the artist also produced works that marked a new and fresh direction. The artist travelled to the Peruvian Amazon rainforest to work with the psychedelic plant medicine ayahuasca alongside Shipibo shamans, and with Kaxinawa shamans from Acre in Brazil, and this experience profoundly influenced his subsequent work.

Dan Hillier has exhibited at MuTate Britain, Les Musée des Arts Décoritifs at the Louvre in a collaboration with Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton, and has had a solo show at the Natural History Museum in Turin. Throughout 2016 he has collaborated with the Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London. Dan Hillier currently lives and works in east London.
