Ooh! These portraits fill me with joy. I love how the added abstract elements set the figures free.
This is the work of Spanish artist Andrea Castro. Castro enjoys studying other languages and says… “I consider art as another language, another way to express yourself. I’m fascinated by the idea of reaching everybody around the world, whichever the language they may speak, and connect with them through my character’s emotions or stories.”
Castro lets each of her paintings guide her direction, she explains… “Once the character’s figurative part begins to become more clear, they will take over my work and express what they want.”
