    Né en 1959 en Dordogne, Daniel CASTAN artiste peintre français, dessine depuis son plus jeune âge.
    Diplômé des Beaux Arts de Bordeaux, il travaille dans un premier temps comme designer graphiste. Très vite il crée sa société et effectue des travaux pour des organisations importantes comme l’UNICEF, Pierre BALMAIN, l’ONU ou ZIPPO. Mais à 40 ans, las de cette vie stressante, exempte de gratitude et finalement de la création qu’il y recherchait, il décide de tout quitter pour peindre.

    Dans sa première vie professionnelle, Daniel Castan a beaucoup voyagé à New-York et à Hong Kong. Il en garde une fascination pour les univers urbains des grandes métropoles et leurs perspectives démesurées. Dans ses toiles, il essaie de recréer ces ambiances très graphiques. Les lignes des immeubles se perdent dans le ciel, les larges avenues semblent sans fin, les couleurs s'entrechoquent.

    L’artiste Daniel Castan a choisi la peinture à l’huile appliquée au couteau qui lui permet de travailler à la fois en pâte, en large touche, et de dessiner dans la matière.

    Le geste s’est affirmé et l’œuvre de Daniel CASTAN a évolué rapidement. Très vite les photographies, son premier support, ne lui sont plus d’aucune utilité, et c’est à présent un monde urbain imaginaire, fantasmé qu’il traite sur la toile. C’est un peintre comme un homme de l’instant, sur le vif. Il vit sa vie et sa peinture quotidiennement, avec rigueur et liberté.

    Daniel Castan est à présent une figure incontournable de l’art contemporain français, représentée à Grenoble par la Galerie Vent des Cimes.

Daniel Castan

Born in 1959 in Dordogne, Daniel Castan draws from a very young age. He graduated from the School of Fine Arts of Bordeaux, he worked as a graphic designer and created his own company, he has done some works for Unicef, Pierre Balmain, ONU, ZIppo, Polyflamme. When he was 40 years old, he started painting again just for the pure pleasure of it. At age 48, he left everything to follow his dreams.

At the beggining of his professional life Daniel Castan travelled a lot to New York and Hong Kong. He had a special fascination for the urban world and their exaggerated perspectives. In his paintings, he tries to recreate these graphic environments. The lines of the buildings get lost in the sky, the long avenues seem endless, the colors collide. The artist works direclty from his memories and imagination.

Daniel Castan chose to paint with alkyd oil. This kind of oil works just like classical oil, but the binder in it, is a kind of resin that allows accelerated drying. His favorite tool is the knife, it allows him to work with paste, and to draw in different materials.
