category: Painting
technique: Oilpainting
Style: Representational


Statement:
Su obra se caracteriza por un realismo sereno y poético, que traduce el deleite del artista en la plasmación de calles, edificios y fachadas con solera. Sus cuadros atrapan la magia de la estética de lo antiguo, y transmiten toda la calidez y humanización de los ambientes no transformados por la vida actual.

Their work is characterized by a serene and poetic realism that he translates the artist's delight in the representation of streets, buildings and facades with antiquity. Their squares catch the magic of the aesthetics of the old thing, and they not transmit the whole warmth and humanity of the atmospheres transformed by the current life.


Bio / Resumee / Statement:
Tomas Castaño was born in Santander (Spain) in 1953. From a young age shows a special inclination towards drawing, but until the age of 17 years he does not take the first brushes and start painting. Self-taught, Tomas carved himself, based on determination and enthusiasm. He has a realistic style, his paintings are very well drawn and he also worries for the composition and perspective of his works. He is a landscape artist but characterized by his architectural work.

His work is characterized by a serene and poetic realism, which translates the artist's delight when he paints streets of old quarters, antique buildings and facades with tradition. His paintings catch the magic of the aesthetics of the antiques, and transmit all the warmth and humanization of unprocessed environments by modern life.

He has shown his work in group exhibitions in several countries such as Germany, Netherlands, USA, France, Argentina, Japan, Italy, Korea and numerous solo and group exhibitions in Spain. Tomas Castaño works represented Cantabria in the Florence Biennale in the 2005 edition.
