About Art of Words
Dan Duffy didn’t set out to become a full-time word artist when he created his first piece to impress a girl. That was 2008. Now, Dan’s girlfriend is his wife, and he’s running his company Art of Words just outside Philadelphia.
When he started Art of Words, Dan was selling his meticulously handwritten pictures of Philadelphia sports stars and landmarks at local craft fairs and holiday markets. Today, this ever-growing collection of word wall art features athletes and attractions from cities around the country, as well as celebrated entertainers, presidents, mascots, and more.
Dan writes each original piece by hand, using only words relevant to the subject. Each original takes at least 50 hours to complete, with larger pieces taking upwards of 200 hours.
Dan has worked with TED Talks, Footlocker, the University of Maryland, NBC Sports, the Philadelphia Flyers, and many other organizations. Dan and his work have been featured by ESPN, the New York Daily News, USA Today, the Washington Post, Good Morning America and several other media outlets.
A portion of proceeds from many of our pieces benefit the following charities!
Improving the quality of life for individuals afflicted with ALS and their families by lessening the financial burden associated with this devastating disease
Focus on educating, advocating, and mobilizing all members of Congress in a bipartisan fashion to benefit people with ALS
Non-profit created by the Grateful Dead & Friends to support creative endeavors in the arts, sciences, and education
Non-profit 501( c)(3) organization, providing financial grants and pro bono medical assistance to retired NFL players in dire need.
