Daniel Joseph Bombardier (born September 27, 1976) is a Canadian pop / mural artist whose aerosol and stencil art works critique contemporary politics, capitalism, consumerism and the human condition under the artists pseudonym and alter ego DENIAL.
His artistic career began in 1999 during his involvement in the graffiti and street art movement. Daniel adopted the moniker 'DENIAL' as a means of poking fun at advertising, politics and media messages that contemporary society is often 'in denial' about. Since then he has maintained an ongoing global street campaign of over 500,000 stickers, placards and murals, using the alpha-numeric characters 'D3N!@L'. Intended as a conceptual means of marketing absurdism, DENIAL also challenges traditional notions of graffiti and public art through his dynamic and often satirical visual subversions. A self-described subversive punk pop artist, DENIAL’s works challenge the comfortably numb consumer masses by holding a mirror up to the viewer using comedic artistic expression, wit and provoking imagery in a unique, unforgettable aesthetic.
