Federico Castellon

Castellon.jpg

My great-uncle, Federico Castellon, was a respected surrealist painter and graphic artist. Throughout the time I was growing up, we always had a few of his dream-like lithographs on display in our house. While Federico spent most of his career based in New York, he was born in Almeria, Spain. The stark desert landscapes of southern Spain can be seen in the background of some of his works.

The exhibition “Federico Castellón, de Almería a Nueva York” opens later this month at the Museo de Almería. I plan to be there for the opening and to do some more photography around Almeria, which is always inspiring.

I don’t believe I’m reading this, for it mirrors my childhood exactly. Federico Castellon was also my great-uncle and have grown up with sketches surrounding me. Out of my family, I don’t know of anyone who was planning on going to Spain for this opening. Are you family I’ve never me. Contact me through email if you please.
