Spanish artist Andrea Castro paints delicate oil work portraits overlaid by thick, expressive strokes of color. Castro, who originally studied fashion design, works in the overlap between abstract and figurative art, often adding details such as beading or embroidery to her works.

When asked to describe her paintings, she says, “Imagine some unknown person in front of you. She (because most of the time it’s a she) is a warm and beautiful woman. And she wants to tell you a story about emotions in the language of shapes and colors.”
