Oilstick & Acrylic on Canvas in Plexiglass Box

Always think outside the plexiglass box! The artist captured a serene moment within this cube, presenting viewers with the opportunity to use their imagination for personal interpretation.
The cube painting series is Castello's successful attempt to overcome the ever-present separation of sculpture and painting. These pieces mark a milestone in the history of art through the methodology. The artist destroys his original paintings to create new masterpieces in form of veritable sculptures. Castello's cube paintings question the fixed perspectives of society, by representing the idea of containing the macrocosm of a whole world into the macrocosm of a limited space. The artworks are perfected in their design by utilising 24 karat gilded screws with which the plexiglass boxes are sealed.
