Philosophy

For Damián Valles Castro, dealing with a new artwork made of wood means entering into an intensive partnership with the blank right from the beginning.

A harmonious approach to - and respect for - each individual work is an indispensable prerequisite for unique results.

Each single masterpiece inspires all the senses of its beholder. With no other raw material can haptic and tactile perception be experienced as impressively as with wood.


Damián Valles Castro   -   'The Wood Understander'
