Alfredo Castaneda's work is by far one of my favorites out of the modern painters of our time. He manages to evoke so much feeling from his paintings and tell a story as to the characters background as well. I love how he incorporates impeccable details like the eyes and the hair. It creates an atmosphere that you may not even realize that what you are looking at is grotesque in a horribly beautiful way.
Although all of his paintings share similar traits, each is so unique and lovely in its own way, which makes it almost ironic to feed upon.
Favorite painting: "The dialogue of two poets disguised as birds" -unable to find on the internet. sorry.
What I wanted to listen to when I first saw it: Cornerstone by the Arctic Monkeys.
I really do love this song.
