Nestor Da draws his inspiration in the materiality of a photograph and the infinite possibilities to transform an image. He constructs his work not only from his own photographs as a starting point, but also with found materials. He juxtaposes, confronts, paints and overlaps them into a single image in order to deconstruct the original. Photographs are the raw material of Nestor Da's artworks. He assembles and collects fragments to unveil a new life for the images and build a singular universe on photographic paper.
The artist get his subject from the immediate environment and the everyday lives of the people he encounters. His intuition and curiosity lead him take unusual shots with startling details.
