Dan Casado

I am always keen to hear from artists who would be interested in a blog post focusing on their work. Usually, I ask for an artist’s statement and a few images which they would like to showcase, but these guidelines are very flexible and I am open to suggestions. If you would like a post on your work, please do contact: kdoutsiderart@yahoo.com.

This post will focus on the work of Dan Casado.


“Nine years ago I established my home-studio in the volcanic island of El Hierro, one of the seven Canary Islands, selected by the UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve. Here, I began making works transforming junk and found objects into pieces of art: paper collages and sculptural assemblages.

I see recycling as a compromise and a lifestyle, giving a second life to old, discarded materials, reusing rejected objects to make new artworks.

Reinventing human and animal forms, freely finding and showing the figures hidden inside found papers and materials, I wonder about human relations, the possibility/impossibility of communication, affections and illusions.

Art is the tool to re-construct the world. Art is my key.” – Dan Casado
