On view March 26, 2015 – May 31, 2015 

A native of Mexico City, Beaumont resident Leonardo Castillo began drawing at a young age and cites the work of Mexican muralist Jose Clemente Orozco as one of his earliest influences. In 2002, Castillo enrolled at the National School of Arts in Xochimilco-Mexico, where he fervently pursued his artist career, taking classes in numerous fields including painting, metal sculpture and ceramics. In this exhibition, Castillo includes recent art from the past couple of years, featuring the depth and variety of his artistic approach. While most of the works in this exhibition are made with acrylics, many include other media, such as cardboard, and show his ability to incorporate texture and collage into his work. Castillo’s abstract expressionist style is vibrant and whimsical, showing his bravura and ability to express ideas with color and line.
