- 0 Comments
Daniel “DTM” Flores is a Mexican-American (Chicano) working artist with a 20-year career in digital and traditional arts. His artistry takes form via Graphic Design, Concept Art, Vector Illustration, Pencil and Ink Drawings plus Fine Art Painting.
Since 2004, DTM has participated in well over 25 group ArtShows in the Atlanta Area
including “Skater AID”, “Chocolate Art” and in galleries sponsored by Binders Art Store, Sam Flax and Herradura Tequila. In 2005, one of DTM’s first Azteca Moderno pieces made it into the Art Beats and Lyrics art exhibit at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta.
In 2011, DTM jumped into acting with The Walking Dead on AMC for one episode and since then he’s been featured in several movies (Triple Nine, Let’s Be Cops and DayBlack) and TV shows (Constantine, Complications and If Loving You Is Wrong) as a mean looking dude.
DTM’s art has been featured in magazines and online interviews, including a bit on the 2012 July issue of ImagineFX Magazine, an English art magazine. He is also a founding member of the arts community non-profit organization Art Is King and is the curator of the free monthly MeetUps designed to bridge the gap between creative skills and business education to empower the artist to thrive.
Buttercup STEAM Camp is a unique week-long adventure for girls to learn, build and code in a fun and supportive environment. Students work hands-on creating Steampunk themed projects that incorporate elements of STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts Mathematics).
It is our primary mission to reduce the gender and racial gap in technology professions by inspiring girls and girls of color with an adventurous and memorable introduction to coding and robotics.
Buttercup STEAM camp was founded in 2017 by engineer and developer, Aisha Flores who has a background in Electronics Engineering and software development. She and her co-leader, Artist Daniel Flores fuse technology and creative arts projects to spark the imaginations of each camper.
Buttercup STEAM Camp is located within SAM Flax Art Store (Atlanta, Georgia), they are great supporters of Buttercup STEAM’s mission within the Atlanta community and is also the venue sponsor.
With the seed grant from the Pollination Project, Buttercup STEAM will be able to reach more girls in the community to learn about STEAM, coding and robotics.
