About the artist:
Martin Dreves Castillo is a Colombian-German artist who grew up in Botswana, Colombia, and Ecuador before settling in Berlin in 2014. Initially drawing television characters as a young boy, Dreves Castillo now devotes himself to mixed-media paintings, incorporating oil, acrylic, and chalk into the creation of his abstract pieces. His focus is on the contrast of complexion and simplicity to show subjects like evolution and growth of the self. The notion of the work is that one can be part of any community, as long as one does what makes them happy.
