Daniel's work has been exhibited in major international exhibitions including the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, at Queensland Art Gallery, in Brisbane, Australia, and The Latitudes 2005: Terres du Pacifique (Contemporary Art from Pacific), at Hotel de Ville de Paris, France.

In February 2006, he attended the Association for Social Anthropology in Oceania conference in San Diego, California, and presented a paper on art and gender issues in Papua New Guinea from his artistic perspective. From there, he spent some time at the De Young Museum, San Francisco, as a guest for the Jolika Collection, carrying out artist demonstrations and giving talks on the cultures of Papua New Guinea. In October of that year, Daniel was selected to be part of the two-week-long Emerging Pacific Leaders Dialogue 2006, titled "Navigating our Future Together," which opened in Brisbane, Australia, and closed in Auckland, funded by Commonwealth governments.

In 2007, Daniel was awarded a research scholar-in-residence at the Macmillan Brown Centre for Pacific Studies, University of Canterbury, Christ-church, New Zealand. Also in 2007, he was invited as a guest speaker by the Museum of Confluences, Lyon, France, to talk about the development of PNG contemporary art, and he took part in the exhibition "Art contemporain Papou" at the Galerie IUFM Confluences, Lyon Croix–Rousse.

Daniel Waswas's artworks are found in both private and public collections.
