Contemporary Urban Landscapes

Painters

French artists

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.
