Artist of the moment…..Alfredo Castaneda

Alfredo Castaneda was born in Mexico City, Mexico in the year 1938. Castaneda would go onto become world renown for his Surrrealist style of painting.

For his collegiate studies the artist attended the University of Mexico where he studied architecture.

Castaneda had his first one man exhibition in 1969.

Part of collections in Mexico, Europe, Japan, and Latin America.

Pricing information:  Having just passed away in 2010, not enough pieces have been sold at market since his death to determine a pricing schedule.

Although not much information out there on the artist I found his work strikingly similar to Fang Lijun. Interesting that both artists use paintings of themselves in their art.
