Vincent Castiglia is an American painter born in Brooklyn, New York. He paints exclusively with human blood on paper. He’s internationally acclaimed for figurative paintings with metaphysical and nightmarish subject matters.

He does a lot of work with themes involving symbiosis of birth and death and the pitfalls of mortality. He’s the first American to receive and invitation to have a solo exhibition in the H.R. Giger Museum in Gruyeres, Switzerland. Castiglia’s work is an examination of the human experience. His work is said to illustrate a humanity that is creative, but at the same time, self-destructive.
