The Oxide Studio
Graphic representations of Arizona’s unique plant life were the inspiration for his botanical themed panels, the first pieces created at The Oxide Studio. His photographic background influenced the choice to “frame” each design within the confines of a rectangle, producing a contemporary, somewhat formal presentation that contrasts well with the colors and organic forms in its environment.
The OXIDE studio has evolved over the years and Daniel Moore has been commissioned to create many works on all scales by private clients, both commercial and residential. The last few years has seen him move into the Public Art arena, an area he is strongly drawn to. His completed projects include inspired sculptural pieces, memorable freestanding works, gateways, enclosures, furniture and more. He has always thought that simple, elegant designs are the most impactful. His pieces reflect a desire to combine iconic design with a medium that reflects a sense of timelessness and permanence while expressing the visions of the client.
Through his work as an artist, Moore creates spaces that enhance the built environment, invites personal interaction, and engages the public through his works of art by identifying themes meaningful to each specific site and community.
The Oxide Studio is located at his home in the Willo Historic District in downtown Phoenix, which he shares with his wife Nina, youngest of three daughters, Sade, their two dogs, and Bazzi the cat.
