perfection with today’s star, media and brand cult as well as the artistic disciplines of appropriation,
happening and performance - interestingly, in the absence of the artist. So that the glittering-pop lip
sculptures of the series The Kiss animate many people to take selfies with the art work. With his Cube
Paintings, Niclas Castello even steps onto new ground in art history because he transforms his
paintings into sculptures by destroying them and presenting them crumpled in acrylic glass cubes.
The also to the media very attractive artist studied art in Paris and New York, among others at the
avant-garde artist Arleen Schloss. Currently, he lives and works in Germany and the USA.
