Rebirth of romanticism

Alvaro Castro

Based in Almeria in the south of Spain, Alvaro Castro has transformed his work into unforgettable illustrations that reveal various facets of our daily lives. “I do conceptual illustrations of a wide range of subjects, but most notably love, interpersonal relationships, and social networks,” he says.

HOW DID YOU START YOUR CAREER AS AN ARTIST?

I started participating in small contests online about 13 years ago and winning a contest. Then I finished studying at the Art School and from that moment I wanted to be a graphic designer for the rest of my life, it has always been my passion.

HOW DO YOU GET THE CONCEPT OF YOUR WORK OF ART?

I try to express a complex idea in a few very concise words and with these words I try to look for very direct elements that are capable of expressing them as best as possible.

HOW DO YOU INTRODUCE YOURSELF?

My name is Alvaro Castro, I’m a graphic designerillustrator born and raised in Andalucia, southern Spain, the son of parents, teachers and brother of two sisters, and a brother. I consider myself a cheerful person, very joking and who is always thinking about new things to do.

WHO ARE YOUR IDOLS?

I have an icon outside the world of illustration in which I fix at the time of synthesizing the elements to express an idea with the least number of these is Chema Madoz, a great photographer who does fantastic works.
