Angel Castelan

The works of Angel Castelán depict a series of ordinary moments that could be a snapshot into anyone’s daily life. However, looking further in depth, the work is a dialogue in itself, which speaks on identity and personal relationships. Castelán sources his own life as reference material for the pieces that he creates. He depicts the authenticity and vulnerability of intimate interactions that are reserved for private moments or settings and are unconstrained by cultural and societal influences. Angel Castelán earned his MFA in Painting from the University of Houston (UH) in 2019. He was a Teaching Fellow at UH from fall of 2017 through spring of 2019. He has had solo exhibitions in Houston including "To Be Honest" at Project Space Gallery in 2019 and "Drawn Superstition" at the William R. Jenkins Architecture and Art Library in 2017. Also, in 2019, Castelán participated in the group exhibitions "Hombres Sinceros" at the Multicultural Education and Counseling Through the Arts organization (MECA) and UH School of Art 41st Annual Thesis Exhibition at the Blaffer Art Museum (Houston). In December of 2018, he was featured in VoyageHouston’s "Art and Life with Angel Castelán".
