Shop Available Works Artist’s CV

Cristian Castro is a self-taught industrial designer and contemporary sculptor who creates whimsical and often times confrontational machines from the discarded parts of airplanes, cars, toasters and anything else mechanical he can get his hands on. Fascinated from a young age by the function of all things, Castro had an insatiable drive to discover, dissect, and dismantle any manner of toy or machine, ultimately fusing them together as artistic creations.

Relocating to the United States in 1999, he has worked as a designer and producer of prototype parts and materials for electric buses. His work is currently being featured at the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach.
