Working as well with acrylics, oils or inks, Dasil presents imaginative figurative paintings, responding to a mix of influences going from Surrealism to Classicism, Fantastic, Allegoric or Sacred art. The fineness and the precision of the drawings are enhanced by the richness of the colors and hues, allowing the artist to share with us some of his passions, such as music, mythology, or history. The whole of his work is meant to be a celebration of life. To the more careful observer, Dasil loves to offer fine composite and complex images, with hidden details and compositions, then revealing a secondary symbolism which remains for ever vivid.
Often accepting sponsors' requests, the works of Dasil are found in many private collections, be it in Mexico, in the United States, in Canada, in Argentina, in France, in Spain and in Germany.

Dasil è nato in Messico e vive a Montreal, Canada dal 2002, è autodidatta, sempre attivo da quasi vent'anni. In parallelo con una carriera pluriennale nella fotografia commerciale, comunicazione aziendale e della produzione programmazione televisiva, Dasil ha sviluppato una ricca opera pittorica, originale e molto personale.
Al suo recente arrivo nel nuovo paese adottivo, ha confermato la sua ferma volontà di dedicarsi totalmente da allora in poi allo sviluppo della sua pittura. L'artista messicano lavora anche con acrilici, oli o inchiostri. Dasil presenta fantasiosi dipinti figurativi, rispondendo alle un mix di influenze che vanno dal Surrealismo al Classicismo, al Fantastico, all'Allegorico o all' arte Sacra.
La finezza e la precisione dei disegni sono esaltate dalla ricchezza dei colori e sfumature, permettendo all'artista di condividere con noi alcune delle sue passioni, come la musica, la mitologia o la storia.
Tutta la sua opera vuole essere una celebrazione della vita. Per il più attento osservatore, Dasil ama offrire immagini composite e complesse raffinati, con dettagli nascosti e composizioni, quindi rivelando un simbolismo secondario che rimane per sempre vividi.
Le opere di Dasil si trovano in molte collezioni private, sia in Messico, negli Stati Uniti, in Canada, in Argentina, in Francia, in Spagna e in Germania.
