Daniel Caro

“Daniel Caro was born in Bogotá, Colombia in 1986. Discovering his talent from a young age and understanding that the current Art Schools would not meet his expectations in a refined technique in painting, and having no funds to study in an Art Academy, he decided to pursue his career as a self-taught artist. He focused on painting realism by carefully researching and practicing on his own for which his self-taught technical skills were recognized and admired, quickly gaining attention locally and internationally and participating in many exhibitions. From the very beginning of his career he participated in important art fairs in Latin America and the United States such as the ArtBo Art Fair in Colombia, Affordable Art Fair in Mexico and Spectrum Art Fair in Miami. He was also invited to participate in public exhibitions such as the Museum of Contemporary Art of Yucatan (MACAY) in Mexico and the Colombo American Cultural Center in Bogota, where one of his works was acquired by the institution. His work is in private collections in the United States, France, Spain, Colombia, Mexico, Chile and Panama. He has participated in important group exhibitions in Spain together with world renowned hyperrealist artists, as well as a group exhibition of small paintings at the European Museum of Modern Art (MEAM) in Barcelona, Spain, accompanied by Masters of realism from around the world. Lately he was awarded an Honorable Mention in the 15th International ARC Salon Competition, the largest representative art competition in the world, and exhibited and auctioned his work at Sotheby’s, one of the world’s largest brokers of fine art, jewellery, and collectibles. He is currently represented by Meyer Gallery and Collins Galleries in the United States.”
