The dream-like exhibition ORACLE, featuring Painting and Installation comes to an end soon. The focal point is a singular painting by Lo Castro, which is also titled Oracle. The artist worked closely with Agudello of Artechouse to select a similar color palette to complement the initial piece.
In “Oracle,” the artist pays homage to the art deco style of the ‘30s and ‘40s blended with a touch of ‘80s flair. “I’m a child of the ‘80s and I also live in Miami, [where] you can’t really escape the pastel color palettes,” he says with a smile. “My work exists somewhere between the futuristic and the nostalgic.”
Artechouse first opened in November 2018 and is dedicated to bringing together art, science, and technology under one roof. Lo Castro admits that he’s not the typical artist that gallery owners Sandro Kereselidze and Tatiana Pastukhova would invite to exhibit. However, the artist draws his inspiration from technology as much as he does from nature. He even paints in a way that is meant to appear as if it was done by machine.
