About The Guest:

Daniel Matthew York is a serial entrepreneur and American painter based in Nashville, Tennessee.  As CEO and founder of a multiple 7-figure agency, Daniel pursues all passions in life as a professional.  His art is  influenced by hundreds of years of art where he paints his current works called Delusionism which he explains, “I just want to snap you out of your day for a minute, maybe I’ll give you a laugh, and maybe you’ll write me a check.” On his subject matter he states, “I spent many years trying to force my style, what I am as an artist, but no matter what I painted it came out “that way.” At some point, I just stopped fighting it and accepted what I did. Now, I just try to make myself laugh.”  He was raised in a suburb of Chicago, Round Lake Beach where his only formal art education was in elementary and high school, he was never formally trained beyond this. York lives and works in Nashville, TN, where his work can be viewed in his downtown gallery.  When he’s not painting or business building, he can be found trading crypto or adding to his watch collection.
