Week 5 – Artist Interview – Romina Del Castillo


This magnificent lady is the Crafty Romina Del Castillo. Yes her name just rolls off the tongue I love it. Romina is originally from Peru and she moved to the states at the age of 16. She travels the world frequently taking in new aspects of environment and getting to see the many different the world has to offer. After her time of traveling she started pursuing her art career. She started out college at Santa Monica Community College and transferred To CSULB because the school and art program just stuck out to her. With her time here she said she does not regret coming to Long Beach at all.

Romina’s art style is very complex because she mixes in a lot of minor details in her work. With her being from Peru it influences her style. “In Peru you see a lot of bright colors, so in my pieces you will notice that there are lot of bright and eye appealing colors” says Romina. As you can see in the picture she likes to do model work but puts her own flavor on the picture. In the picture it seems like a normal portrait painting but if you look at the wall she stops using the original pattern and creates her own. This is her way of having fun with her work. She also looks to great artists like Manet, Egon Schiele, Lucian Freud, and Alice Neel for tips. With all of these different factors in her work masterpieces are made and you got an example in the picture she is standing by.
