Daniel Cascardo is a Metro Detroit-based visual artist who creates abstract paintings that combine elements from primitive cultures with Euro sophistication. His work has been described as “Fauvist-bright, cubist geometric and Picasso-esque in human form,” with a joy and vibrancy that creates a “playground for the senses.”
Painting from his imagination, Cascardo characterizes his technique as “spontaneous with an intuitiveness that surrenders to the process.” Through imagery, color, movement, line, patterns and shapes, he captures a moment in time with originality and energy.
Cascardo’s works are on display at more than 30 corporate and public institutions, including Meritor Inc., Henry Ford Health Systems, Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburg, Wayne State University, University of Michigan, University of Detroit Mercy, Dearborn Automotive Hall of Fame, St. Barbara Catholic Church, Christ Church Cranbrook, Genisys Credit Union and the City of Royal Oak, Michigan. He is an alumnus of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business program, a two time TEDx speaker and a frequent contributor to a variety of charitable groups, via his interactive mural-making program, the Cascardo Art Action Experience.
