Federico Castellon

Noted as a surrealist printmaker, painter, sculptor, and illustrator, Castellon, immigrated to the United States with his family at an early age. He was basically a self-taught artist, sketching while young and visiting various museums in the city of New York. His influences were the Old Masters, Giorgio de Chirico, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, and Georges Roualt. After meeting with Castellon, Diego Rivera became interested in his drawings and showed them to the director at the Weyhe Gallery in New York City where he eventually had his first solo exhibition. Castellon received two Guggenheim fellowships and experimented with the mediums, lithography and etching. His prints and drawings are the first examples of Surrealism created by an American. He was elected to the National Academy of Design in New York and became a member of the Society of American Graphic Artists. Castellon had many exhibitions at various institutions and galleries and was included in exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
