An oil painting in the Old Master style of a horseshoe crab resting upside down on a wooden table. Warm overhead light from an unseen window illuminates the scene and creates gentle reflections on the many surfaces. Daniel says he first painted the subject and then built the shadows with thin glazes.
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.
