Francisco Castro

Spanish painter (Montilla - Córdoba, 1971)

Francisco Castro studied Fine Arts at the Complutense University of Madrid. He is currently one of the greatest exponents of watercolor in the world.

Throughout his career he has worked in various plastic activities until the moment when he decided to dedicate himself fully to painting.

Seasoned in speed painting competitions, his works in the watercolor technique represent the soul of the places he visits. Hence, he unites color and atmosphere in his proposals; that he integrates into a whole where the synthesis of motive prevails. An objective for which the use of watercolor is ideal.

Francisco Castro defines himself as a figurative painter who practices atmospheric realism.

His proposals from him have been distinguished with different awards. Among them, the Medal of Honor of the BMW national painting award stands out, one of the most prestigious awards in the national creative scene; and the International Prize for Sports Painting.
