Danny Sangra studied at Central Saint Martin’s. An established artist and illustrator he has collaborated with brands such as the BBC, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Nylon, Louis Vuitton and Show Studio, and has shown solo exhibitions in London, Europe, Tokyo and New York.
A combination of his graphic work in the fashion industry and his love for film, led to a move into directing fashion films for various up and coming labels. Incorporating this with his love of music, Danny began creating promos and visuals for the likes of Metronomy, Goldielocks and Chapter Sweetheart.
And if all this wasn’t enough, Danny has also found time to co-run a knitwear label 'AMS' and co-direct 'The Knocking Shop', a delightfully warped online music chat-show.
“The arch media manipulator… Buttress has been making mash-ups long before the term was even invented”
“A celebration and decimation of the songs of yesterday and today to form music for the ears of tomorrow.” / Clint Flicks
“Buttress O’Kneel is the P!nk of the electro-activist world, or perhaps the Negativland of breakcore, or, perhaps even more accurately, the Mother Theresa of bio-anarchic post-grrl underculture.” / Last.fm
“She has dedicated her life to fighting the reptilian mind-control agenda, whether or not it actually exists.” / Alias Frequencies

SPACE INVADERS AT THE NGA
This event is run in association with the NGA's street art exhibition, 'Space invaders' www.nga.gov.au/spaceinvaders
Parking will be available at the eastern side of the NGA, and at the National Library of Australia, so you will only have a few blocks to walk at worst. Entrance to the event is via the NGA carpark.
CHILL AND VIEW?
The Digital Jam Event Lounge Bar will be located at the northern end of the carpark. This is a dedicated glamour zone where you can unwind and take in the spectacular light show that is digital jam. In close proximity to the cocktail bar, this is the place to chill and soak up the good vibes.
You will also have the option to plug in and listen to the oversized documentary that is projected throughout the space.
The NGA is committed to presenting the national collection of art, together with exhibitions, education and public programs and to providing facilities which meet visitors’ expectations, particularly visitors with special needs, such as people with disabilities.
