Artist of the moment…….Street artist legend Cool Disco Dan….

Cool Disco Dan was one of the original street artists working in the District of Columbia area. His government name is Dan Hogg and he was born on December 31, 1969. His tag “Cool Disco Dan” has been sprayed all across the District of Columbia.

Started performing graffiti art in 1985.

Cool Disco Dan is included in the book Free Agents, which has to do with street art in the nations capital.

Included in the Corcoran Museum of Art.

His work can be seen in motion pictures.

In this clip a segment from a full length documentary featuring the artist.

In this clip a very informal interview with Disco Dan

A new documentary is out now titled the Legend of Cool Disco Dan.

Sorry, no price range information available. Occasionally he will produce a t-shirt design, but demand quickly takes up supply so no pricing available.

Its amazing to see how much street and graffiti art has evolved since Cool Disco Dan’s humble beginnings in the 1980s. Now we see many street artists that have great drawing and painting skills such as Swoon. Its nice to see how Cool Disco Dan got the ball rolling by tagging everything in sight!
