About Andrea


Andrea Castro is a painter based in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.

Andrea explains the work by saying, “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. I want the observer to identify with my own artistic idiom and to vent of all those feelings we all have felt overtaking ourselves at some point. To do that I create internal conversations with the subjects of my paintings, they tell me what they want to transmit as I’m giving them shape. Once the character’s figurative part begins to become more clear, they will take over my work and express what they want. Then, this is the most terrifying but at the same time funniest part of the whole process: translating their wishes with stokes. Sometimes they are stubborn so a fight between me and those newly created persons begin as my primary idea vanishes and their’s becomes more fierce. My oil work is amid figurative and abstract art, with an special touch of expressionism that characterize my personage’s soul.”

Love it! The juxtaposition of unrealistic abstract color and realism is wonderful.

that's an awesome painting!!!!

Extraordinario. Me gustan los colores.

Very unusual portraits. I like the way she makes an oil painting look like a water colour.
