Marcello Castellani, born in Cali, Colombia in 1989 and currently based in Berlin, Germany, is a painter who delves into the realm of human duality. Throughout his career, which began in 2014, he has been on a quest to capture the profound emotions conveyed through human expressions, with portraiture being a recurring theme in his work.
His aspiration to intertwine chaos and order within a single canvas manifests as an ongoing exploration of duality that guides viewers into the depths of the human experience. As a master of utilizing both light and darkness, Castellani metaphorically harnesses these elements to underscore the inherent coexistence of light and darkness within our inner selves. He emphasizes that one cannot exist without the other.
Equipped with a versatile skill set that spans traditional techniques like painting and drawing to digital and experimental methods, Castellani seamlessly bridges the gap between artistic tradition and contemporary possibilities. His artistic prowess has earned him recognition in celebrated art hubs, including New York, Berlin, Barcelona, Prague, and Brussels, where he has exhibited his unique and thought-provoking artworks.
