ABOUT

BIO

Castaldi left Wales in 1992 and headed to LA to be a rockstar, he soon discovered his musical abilities were limited so picked up a camera and started shooting live bands along the Sunset Strip and documented scenes across California. After a conversation with Lemmy in the world famous Whisky a Go Go, Julian decided this could be his future.  Jump forward 30 odd years and his portfolio includes work with Rolling Stones, Tom Jones, Paul Weller, Oasis, Incubus, Pearl Jam, Stereophonics, John Malkovich, Red Bull, Adidas, Gallery One and many more.

Julian's paintings focus on people and objects popularin mass culture and use different techniques, such as gold-leaf, acrylic, enamel, plaster and graffiti. Taking iconic and instantly recognisable figures and using strong patterns and bold, contrasting colours in a way you may not have seen them before.
