Dan Casado

Creating is for him a way to "re-build the world."

Recycling takes on artistic and ecological significance. Giving a second life to discarded materials and turning them into works of art, Dan questions man’s view of materials.

In his highly coloured portraits, he combines natural elements with pasted newspapers. He plays on the transparency of the medium to create backgrounds that are rich in detail. Text rubs shoulders with paint in perfect harmony. Dan defines the various figures (people, animals) by thick black outlining to make them stand out better. His works offer an alternative to reality by transporting us to a happy dream world.
