Tomás Castaño was born in Santander (Spain) in 1953

Since very young he demonstrates a special predisposition towards the drawing, but up to the age of 17 years he does not take the first paintbrushes.

Of self-taught formation, he has forged himself, based on tenacity and enthusiasm, being decanted by a style of realistic painting, which he approaches forming constructed, welldrawn compositions.

As he is concerned about the composition and drawing of the work, he controls the perspective. He also controls the powers that have led him to reaching  the status of a landscape's painter whose work is characterized by its architecture.
