Daniel Castan the artist has traveled extensively in New York and Hong Kong. He kept a fascination for the urban world and their prospects. In his paintings he tries to recreate the atmosphere very graphically. The lines of buildings are lost in the sky, the wide avenues seem endless, the colors clash. The cities of Daniel Castan are a celebration of color and light that invite us to travel.
The artist works from his memories, his imagination.
Daniel Castan chose to paint with an oil alkyd. It works like traditional oil, but the binder is a resin that allows an accelerated drying.
