Celso Castro Portrait

CELSO CASTRO

 REPRESENTED ARTIST 

Celso Castro is a reference in Colombian Caribbean plastic arts who has drawn, painted, sculpted and photographed penises for more than four decades.
In his works, Castro exalts the male genitalia, putting into tension the limits imposed by the sex/gender system that are part of an unquestioned patriarchal and phallocentric order. Most men
The ones he portrays are inhabitants of the Colombian coast, also constructing alternative ways of conceiving Latin American identity.
By breaking taboos on corporality and male sexuality, his work has been censored on many occasions due to public accusations of immorality and pornography.

ARTWORKS

Drawing on paper is his basic work tool, some are sketches of his surviving works, and others are sketches of moments he documents.
