Daniel Castan

10 years ago, Daniel Castan exhibited for the first time in Carré d'artistes galleries. From Bordeaux to Lyon, through Lille and Paris, his artworks meet a passionate public in the early hours.

In his first professional life, Daniel travelled extensively in New York and Hong Kong. During these trips he developed a fascination with the urban world and its larger-than-life perspectives, and now he recreates these graphic ambiances in his painting. The lines of buildings are lost in the sky, the wide avenues seem endless, the colours clash.

The knife, his tool of choice, allows him to work the material as a paste, in large strokes or to draw in the medium. The choice of this instrument is not accidental; the knife leaves no room for doubt.

Today, with this new collection of small sizes artworks, Daniel Castan returns to his first love with a new technique specific to comics : coloring in the old way, without a computer, just with inks and resins. Painting quickly becomes comics, with less depth but with a more Street Art finish. 

A painter by instinct, Daniel lets the paint lead him to an abstract and uncluttered representation. Big formats worked with knife or small formats, more street-art inspired by comics, his approach is not calculated; Daniel does not think, he paints.
