Artist

Daniel Caro
Bogota, Colombia

Born in Bogota, Colombia in 1986, Daniel Caro is an emerging artist who has developed his work in a self-taught fashion. Daniel incorporates paper figures in his compositions, breaking the pattern of traditional still life painting; this approach injects a sense of modernism into the classical realism of his compositions. Daniel is quickly gaining attention in the contemporary art world. His works have been displayed at several international art fairs, including Spectrum Miami, Affordable Art Fair Mexico and ArtBo in Colombia.

Artwork Details

Comments About This Piece

This painting on canvas is part of a big project of origami subjects that I have painted in the last 5 years. Some paintings feature origami calf and bull heads on neutral backgrounds, while others have colorful modular origami figures. This series has had a very positive response in galleries and art fairs both in the US and Latin America. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished black edges. It comes ready to hang.

Oil painting

Oil paint uses natural oils, such as linseed, poppy and walnut oil to bind the pigments. Oils are slow to dry, which allows the artist to rework the painting to achieve the desired effect. Also, they blend easily, which helps to achieve certain colors. With the rise of naturalism in 15th century Early Netherlandish painting, oil paints became preferred to quick drying tempera paint. Artists wanted a medium that would allow them to achieve detailed and precise effects in their paintings. Consider all of the detail in the masterpieces of Jan van Eyck and Hieronymus Bosch!

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.

One-of-a-kind

A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
