Daniel Efram’s photos deal with characters and abstract minimalism. Informed by Arbus, Brassai, Man Ray, film noir and current events, Efram has been showing his work steadily since late 2014. By the end of 2016 there will have been five of his solo showings, lovingly entitled “Public Hangings.”
In addition to his still photography, Efram has been active as a multimedia filmmaker, collaborating with musicians for the debut of “Nouveau Noir,” an improvisational music meets abstract film event which debuted at New York’s Howl Art in July 2016.
As a curator, he most recently produced the Modular Synthesis show by painter Steve Keene at Shepard Fairey’s Los Angeles Gallery Subliminal Projects. Previously, he presented Steve Keene’s Brooklyn, where Keene was the Artist in Residence and boldly presented an immersive art performance for three months during the Summer of 2015.
Currently, his company Tractor Beam is also involved with two current documentary film productions. Involved with the arts all of his adult life, Efram was an associate professor at New York University’s Tisch / Clive Davis School of Recorded Studies as well as an agent representing multiple disciplined artists in their business endeavors. He currently manages longtime indie music group The Apples in stereo.
