Daniel Mattar

Artist

Daniel’s work is full of paradoxes: the technological camera to the intuitive gesture with the oil paint. In his research, Daniel develops dialogues through photography that show multiple three dimensions on two-dimensional planes.

Through the use of oil paints and/or mineral pigments, the artist composes his images by intervening on small areas of packaging, book images, ink cartridges, photos from personal files and several other surfaces related to image reproduction.

Once finished, his micro-spaces are immediately photographed at the height of freshness of the paints and then printed in large-scale works, establishing a vast dimensional vocabulary of volumes and colours.

His research in photography began in Tokyo, Japan, where he lived and worked in the nineties.

For twenty-five years that photography is his form of expression. He has travelled through various fields such as fashion, portraits and documentaries.
