Dan Meluzin has not surrendered to the magnetic power of digital technologies, but rather to their consequences, the growing pressure of the world of media, advertising, celebrities, consumption and the related transformations of culture and the superficialization of the perception of social values. He presented himself as a vital, self-confident and provocative artist who revitalized painting through the triviality and shoddiness of his themes. He drew his inspiration from the work of Van Gogh, from his method of working with paint, color and light, as well as from classical and postwar Modernism, Pop art in particular, which he transformed in his own painting concept. Based on some Pop art practices he is usually referred to as a successor of Pop art, which, however, is only one aspect of his work.
