Francesco Lo Castro
Francesco Lo Castro has the heart of a painter and the mind of a twenty-first century philosopher. His recent body of work explores subjects in the metaphysical and existential realms, which he conveys through a visual language that is both accessible and complex. Through the use of shapes, colors, symmetry, layers and movement, Lo Castro presents his work across a platform that transcends the diversity of the human experience. There is a meditative quality beneath his paintings, which is brought to life in subtle video movement. Each painting is constructed through symmetrical layers that are slowly stripped away to reveal a nucleus within a configuration that reflects the invisible structures that define our experience.
Lo Castro was born in Catania, Italy in 1976, raised in Germany, and transplanted to South Florida during high school, where he immediately became immersed in the local graffiti and punk/hardcore music scenes. Lo Castro’s work has been exhibited internationally and he has been listed among 100 distinguished artists to forge the South Florida art community in the definitive book “Miami Contemporary Artists,” released by Schiffer Publishing in 2007.
