Niclas Castello Biography

Niclas Castello is one of today’s most respected contemporary artists worldwide. In only a few years, Niclas Castello has like no other managed to take the art world by storm and is now named in the same breath as today’s best known contemporary artists. He has become a vital figure in prestigious galleries such as Guy Hepner in New York & Los Angeles, the Avant Gallery in New York & Miami or Above Second in Hong Kong, where his work is displayed next to the art of today’s most popular contemporary artists such as Andy Warhol, Gerhard Richter, Jeff Koons or Damien Hirst.

The American performance artist and curator Arleen Schloss, mentor to artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat or Keith Haring, was one of the first to recognize the outstanding talent of Niclas Castello. During his two-year stay at Arleen Schloss’s New Yorker loft, Niclas Castello immersed himself in neo-expressionistic compositions and developed his distinctive style so well-known to today’s art community. His work is honored in the world’s most important art institutions and recognized by renowned auction houses like Philips de Pury, London & New York. Articles about him can be found in journals such as the Garage Magazine and he regularly takes part in reputable art fairs such as the ART BASEL.

Niclas Castello was born in the 80’s and grew up in Germany. His early fascination and curiosity for the world of colors made him part of the street art movement in East Germany. His restless search for the new, led him to the famous Montmartre district in Paris, where he joined the street art scene around INVADER and found inspiration for his art of painting. Shortly after his return to Germany, he again set off to distant shores, to New York, where he developed his unique style and his unparalleled career began.
