In 1987, after chancing upon the Manifestoes of Surrealism by Andre Breton at Dickinson College Library in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, where he was attending a summer program, Daniel C. Boyer made his first automatic drawings and paintings. He would not become active in international surrealism until his twenty-first birthday, however, after corresponding with the co-founder of the Surrealist Movement in the United States, Franklin Rosemont.
Boyer graduated from Curry College in 1997 with a degree in Politics and History.
He is best known, however, for his use of entoptic graphomania, a method developed by the surrealists in Bucharest, in which a dot is made at the site of each impurity or difference in colour in a blank sheet of paper, and then lines are drawn between the dots, although he has also worked extensively in gouache, with fumage, and chocolate coulage
