Born in London in 1959, Danny Moynihan is a painter and writer. He went to the Slade School of Art in 1977 and in 1981 opened The Space gallery with Paul Kasmin and furniture designer Jasper Morrison. Moynihan moved to New York in 1983 where he worked at the Robert Miller Gallery. On his return to London he took up painting again and had several exhibitions in Los Angeles and London.
He has curated numerous shows, most notably ‘Psycho’ at Anne Faggionato, London, ‘Artist and Photography’ at Karsten Schubert Gallery, London, and ‘Between a Rock and Hard Place’ at Rove gallery, London, and is also a founding member of Photo London. He wrote the hit-seller satire, Boogie Woogie, in 2001 - in which the New York art world was revealed for its supposed false loyalties, hysteria and greed - and which was recently adapted for the screen, starring Gillian Anderson, Charlotte Rampling and Heather Graham. His book 'Bait' was published in 2008.
