Daniel Pielucha was born in 1959 in Wieluń. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, obtaining his diploma in Graphic Arts from the Katowice Faculty in 1985. In 2018, which marked the centenary of Poland regaining its independence, the Minister of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland honored him with the "Meritorious for Polish Culture" badge. The type of canvas painting practiced by the artist is referred to as "Polish Surrealism."
In his work, following in the footsteps of great predecessors, the painter seeks qualities that distinguish the uniqueness of Polish culture. With great respect for the craft and history of Polish painting, he emphasizes its distinctive character. He finds inspiration in the fading landscapes of our province, which is why he regularly participates in major outdoor figurative art events. The folk culture of the Polish countryside, its beliefs, and customs serve as the backdrop for his painterly visions, in which the artist expresses his stance towards the contemporary world and the existence of the individual.
The artist has presented his creations at solo exhibitions in Arłamów, Chorzów, Czeladź, Częstochowa, Gdańsk, Głogówek, Gniezno, Gorlice, Iława, Katowice, Lublin, Oświęcim, Rzeszów, Sieradz, Szczyrk, Warsaw, Wieluń, and Zielona Góra. He has also represented Polish art in group exhibitions in Astana, Berlin, Mexico, New York, Istanbul, and Stockholm.
