Paintings By Santiago Casas

Santiago Casas is an abstract expressionist artist from Spain who has travelled extensively, living in Madrid, London, Miami, Paris and Berlin. Santiago’s strong artistic drive originated through the making of music, but it’s in the blank canvas that he found the freedom he was searching for. His work reflects both the chaos and the order we experience as human beings, where everything and nothing are constantly fighting for our soul. By expressing the loneliness of the individual in an increasingly confusing world, his work ranges from balanced chaos to refined clarity.

Santiago’s technique builds upon the versatile dripping method, where the paint dives towards a horizontal canvas. This technique profits from the forces of time and gravity, as well as a strong body movement, that results in the paint dripping in unlimited ways. Nevertheless, Santiago is able to control this process through all sorts of imaginative and out-of-the-box instruments, including garden and kitchen utensils, air pressure generators, mechanical appliances, wood sticks, brushes, rollers, magnifying lenses, or his own hands. Some works therefore take weeks, while others can take months before the patterns can be untangled and stabilized into a coherent experience. Nevertheless, sometimes the more minimal works are the most challenging because you only get one shot at the canvas.
