Dan Solomon is a painter and professor in the Drawing and Painting program at OCAD University. He worked full time at the David Mirvish Gallery from 1968 to 1970, and exhibited there in 1977 and 1978.

David Mirvish opened his gallery in 1963 and focused on exhibitions of Color Field artists. Since closing the gallery in 1978 he has worked primarily in the theatre and has continued to collect, building on the foundation of artists shown in the gallery. He is currently planning the creation of a museum to exhibit the collection in the Mirvish/Gehry project on King Street West. The project includes the Princess of Wales entre for Visual Arts at OCAD U.

David Mirvish and Dan Solomon have been friends since 1968; soon after, Dan moved to Toronto from Portland, Oregon.
