Jake Castro

Sacramento, USA

Jake Castro is a Sacramento based artist who, like many artists, started drawing at a very young age. Jake has always known creating art was his true passion and that he wanted to pursue it as a career. He was educated and received his BFA at the Art Institute of Chicago. He has participated in artist-in-residency programs in both Spain and Thailand. His work has been featured in Sacramento's Art Hotel, Art Street, the WAL (Warehouse Artist's Lofts) and as part of last year's Sacramento Mural Festival. He has also been shown in galleries in Sacramento, Chicago and internationally.

Jake creates kinetic, geometric imagery by experimenting with linear forms that generate depth, dimension and movement found naturally within the structural surfaces of his painted murals. His pieces stand out for their bold design and precision. In addition to his visual arts, Jake has his own brand of laser-cut wooden jewelry, home accessories, and engraved leather goods.
