Danny Hahlbohm


Danny HahlbohmDanny Hahlbohm was born in Mineola, New York in June of 1949. He grew up on the eastern end of Long Island, New York until 1968 when he enlisted in the Armed Forces and was sent overseas. After he was honorably discharged in 1972, Danny began painting for galleries and auctions houses across the Nation. 

Two years later he started touring the country, promoting himself and exhibiting his work nationally from coast to coast. Danny was approached by one of the largest publishers in the art field while on tour in 1978, and they began distributing reproductions of his works throughout the country. 

Within a year Danny released Footprints in the Sand. This resulted in worldwide recognition, putting Danny Hahlbohm's artwork into the homes of literally millions. In his 30-year career there have been over 100 different prints of Danny’s paintings reproduced and distributed to over thirty countries around the world. 

Danny’s style and technique has brought him much recognition, ranging from billboards of his work across areas of the United States, to commissions for many magazine covers, CD covers, as headstones in cemeteries, limited edition plates, puzzles and even honored for openings in select theaters of Texas for Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ” just to name a few. Although Danny never took any art lessons, he has developed his style to such simplicity that he gave many art classes across the states, sharing his knowledge. 

These art classes are now currently available on DVD through Danny’s new website at www.oilpaintingeasy.com
