Niclas Castello is a German contemporary artist influenced by Pop art, Neo expressionism and Street art. In his words, “colour came into my life, the day the Berlin Wall came down”. Exhibiting for the first time in Australia, his work is well known across Europe and America and he boasts customers like Beyonce, Jay Z and Dolce & Gabbana. He is best known for his “The Kiss” sculptures.
The contemporary shooting-star artist is writing art history by re-defining the relationship between painting and sculpture. He combines the two art forms, overcoming the separation between the two and three dimensional, destroying his own masterpieces to create out of them new artworks and at the same time transforming paintings into veritable sculptures.
