Artists that inspire me: Dan Casado

I discovered Argentinian-born Dan Casado only recently, but I'm glad I did! His multi-layered work immediately drew my attention.

Dan is living in Spain since 1980, and he calls his art "outsider folk art".

I would love to do a workshop with him to learn how to achieve that incredible depth and transparency.

I like the surreality of his paintings. There's so much to see.

Look at that little man sitting on his shoulder ... Love it!

His work reminds me a little bit of Corneille. Mostly because of the figures sometimes floating around on the canvas, the fish and birds, the surrreal elements.

Love the transparancy of this.

Here you can see him at work:

Fascinating, isn't it!?

If you want to see more of Dan's wonderful artwork, you can visit his website, go to his facebook-page, or have a look around at Flickr. So many more goodies on show there!

Well, I hope you enjoy his work as much as I do. Thanks Dan for letting me feature you!

See you on Friday for the Paint Party! Thanks so much for visiting ♥
