Marcos Castro Solo Show

July 24 – September 3
Marcos Castro – Miami’s first solo show.

The Mexican artist is presenting his new body of work in his first gallery’s exhibition in Miami

 

Mexico City, Mexico 1981. Lives & works in Mexico City.

 

A young artist that reflects on a fundamental act in the art: the look. By diverse media he explores the dialogue betweenmaterials of natural origin as graphite and wood, that serves as a technique to speak of what is human from subjective codes in his relation with the media and with the multiplicity of the points of view of the spectator.  He integrates elements from his personal mythology and from nature as testimonial symbols of contemporary society. The work is an exploration of the interactions between techniques and formats that includes drawing, painting, stage resources, installation, animation, video-art and video-installation. He puts the spectator in a vigilant position before his will of contemplation. He has been selected in the official selection of the Biennial Tamayo 2006, in the Scholarship young Creators of the FONCA 2007 and in the residence Artist in Residence at 18th, Street Art Center Los Angeles in 2008.
