Based half-way between London & Oxford, De-create was established 2001 as a platform for multi-disciplinary Artist Daniel P Wilson.

Decreate produces artwork, and then some. We work closely with our clients and collaborators to achieve great things, from businesses and brands to individuals and communities.

With over 25 years of experience, we mix energy, understanding, skill and authenticity with a light, professional approach.

Visually we pride ourselves on have no ‘house-style’ prefering to provide bespoke designs with their own identity, and we use the process, medium & technical techniques to satisfy the needs of the project; being artistically versatile is a strength encouraging vitality in creative thinking and personal expression.

All our work is unified in its attention to detail, quality of finish and overall engagement with viewers. We are knowledgable in materials and processes, we care about our environment and history, and we are considerate to people and places.

The eclectic portfolio takes in personal & commercial artwork resulting in stand-out pieces such as large-scale public Murals (The Brunel Shed and The award-winning Oxford Canal Murals), Graphics (the MBS Pro 100 Mountainboard), and illustration (the Painspotting Series of books).

We have also worked with award-winning agency Soulful Creative since 2010, collaborating with many other talented and varied artists and contributing to numerous successful projects.


1. The word ‘Decreate’ was coined in 2001 by Dan and his big brother Mark, a talented designer and fan of cromulant words.

2. The first project to carry the Decreate name was a series of snowboard graphics for FSU in 2003.


3. Dan has largely hidden behind many other names and projects over the years.

4. He’s pretty crap at The Social Media Game.

5. Dan also has many rewarding personal projects, such as work with Conservation Agency Chiltern Rangers and of course the popular online mountainboard magazine Remolition (see below).

FINE ART: Artist Statement blah

Daniel P Wilson (BA Fine Art, Painting) has spent a lifetime actively mixing creative platforms, utilising and subverting traditional & contemporary artistic skills.

“I love creating something with a twist. Adding levels or details, humour or tragedy. Destroying and creating like night and day, dark and light.

My passion is rooted in art; visual expression of ideas, moods, interests. I buzz off the diversity and challenges, and i just can’t be a one-trick pony, sorry. My artwork ranges from quick scrawls to detailed doodles into super-realism via painterly abstract expressionism. I invent graphics then customise toys and furniture. I love mixing it up-  pencil, spraycan, photography, photoshop. Textures, colour, concepts…

‘The Girl in the Pink Hoody’, mixed-media on canvas 2009

It’s all a reaction, a meditation, a way of expressing, and it’s good for the soul. It’s better when your heart is in your art.

It’s like music, or soul sports; it’s practise, personal fulfillment, evolving whilst enjoying the moment.

New techniques, using old ones in new ways, learning from mistakes, balance, and feeling alive.

Speaking of which…



In his ‘spare’ time Dan enjoys Mountainboarding and runs the popular online magazine covering this alternative sport Remolition.com

Set up with friends in 2007, Dan takes care of visuals and editorial, including writing the‘Inside Line’, his blog of some years.

It has all been a fantastic vital outlet for yet another side of Dan’s artistic expression.
