Francesco Lo Castro is a "painter at heart". The Italian artist works with a wide variety of media and techniques but each work he creates stems from a pictorial perception which is evident in the use of colour and the composition.

Through his art, Castro explores profound issues and concepts that analyse the intersections of social and cultural identities in each one of his pieces. Through their geometric abstraction, alive with colour and movement, they are representations of issues that deeply affect individual identity. The central focus points are the intersections that create ideological friction. These sudden bursts are the central point of the composition, that slowly expands to cover the entire piece, resulting in a myriad of infinite combinations, shapes, colours and explosion of movement. Almost like the pictorial interpretation of the collision created by the clash of opposites, the images explore the intensity of the "vastly influential and unstoppable societal flux."
