Guglielmo Castelli Biography

Guglielmo Castelli (b. 1987, Italy) hybrid and subtly violent iconographic universe questions the relation between inner and outer space, between bowels and environment, and somehow overturns the precepts of Italian Renaissance painting, with its strict geometric and rational system. Released from any constraint, figures slip and overlap on either neutral backdrops or unfamiliar landscapes, flowing like lightning flashes, clouds at dusk and wind-torn vegetation. From fluid and wide, brushstrokes coagulate into thick knots that are used to portray melancholy, astonishment and wonder, while characters melt into gentle yet cruel chromatic accents, suspended in uncertain postures that reflect an unsteady grip on reality.
