Niclas Castello grew up in the former eastern part of Germany. After the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, he was opened up to a world of color that he became fascinated by. He moved to Paris and found inspiration to paint in the famous Montmartre district. In 2003 he returned to Germany, but became dissatisfied with the way art was taught in school. He dropped out and considered quitting art altogether. Thankfully, he was led by instinct to New York City. He found solace in the mentoring support of Arleen Schloss and the inspiration of New York City. Castello’s new style was born. Driven by that passionate inspiration, further renowned sculptures and paintings were produced.
