Casu’s work engages with issues related to behavior, the way we think, and how we move through the (in)visible structures within society.
Employing diverse aesthetic strategies and mediums – including painting, objects, interventions – his works function as a metaphor, appointing concealed sociological and psychological aspects.
Born in The Netherlands, Italian roots, Danny lives and works in Belgium / The Netherlands and his agency and creative background are rooted in graffiti culture. A pivotal moment occurred in his creative approach as he got directly inspired by the underlying process of a larger psychological project that focusses on the recovery of prisoners with long term sentences after extreme hard acts of violence.
The deconstruction of his graffiti practice results into the separation of three components, [ visual – paint – surface ].
By reinterpreting each individual component, underlying motives and hidden aspects of one’s personality are visualized, that often unconsciously influence the way we think, act and behave on a daily basis.
