Hi – My name is Bart Castle and I’ve been creating art and music for as long as I can remember.
In high school DaVinci wowed me with his ability to meld science, math, and art. I loved Albrecht Durer’s wood cuts and etchings. I’m also a big fan of Gary Larsen and his Far Side comics; Ralph Steadman, Shel Silverstein, Dr Seuss …and so many others.
I live in Asheville, NC with my wife and children, we are grateful for the many blessings we’ve found there.
I absolutely love dinosaurs (Allosaurus is my favorite) and animals, as you can probably tell by the subject matter of many of my pieces. My second passion after art is music.Here’s a video of me playing original song called “Owl Grounds” You can check out all the videos on my music page.
I’ve been exhibiting my original artwork at a local gallery here in Asheville, NC. Zapow! is the only illustrators gallery in the South Eastern US and it’s been a fantastic opportunity being involved.
