Jose E. Castellanos

Latino Artist: Jose E. Castellanos

I, Jose E. Castellanos am a 53 year old Latino physician who practices Family Medicine in the City of Chicago. While I had no formal training in the arts, the art of healing patients has given me an insight into the personal strengths and struggles of what life is all about. It is with these emotions that I chooses to paint the canvas with. I, Dr. Castellanos have witnessed life as it is being born - as it is being delivered unto this world. At the other spectrum, I have been present at the last breathe of a person's worldly existence. It is this strength and frailty in the human spirit that I choose to respect with the stroke of the brush. As you look at my paintings, free yourself of your own worldly attachments and accept them for what they are; for the brush stroke and the color left behind on the paper or canvas is but a medium of the human soul.
