KINETIC ART BY HUGO DIAZ – Born in Venezuela in 1965 he holds a degree in Engineering of Computer Systems from the Metropolitan University, Caracas, Venezuela. He is an artist expressing himself in Kinetic Art. Hugo Diaz’s work encompasses geometric abstraction, color, lines, light, and other elements to create art that includes virtual movement. Kinetic art movement was initiated by masters such as Israeli artist Yaacov Agam, French-Hungarian artist Victor Vasarely, and Venezuelans Jesús Rafael Soto and Carlos Cruz-Diez.
NEW PAINTING BY FREDY VILLAMIL – “In the Garden” an oil painting by Villamil just arrived to the Naples gallery. His work is strongly influenced by Modern Masters, including Pablo Picasso, resulting into a signature all his own. Many of his works are also on display at our Estero location.
We are pleased to announce that the Aldo Castillo Gallery has been appointed by their estates to represent the modern works of Guatemalan Rodolfo Abularach and of South African artist Lorna Marsh.

Lorna Marsh, Cape Town, South Africa 1949-2022. She is considered one of the most important female artists of our time. She was a keen thinker and delighted in testing boundaries, which is reflected in her art. Internationally celebrated, her works were often confrontational and explored such themes as mankind’s destructive relationship with nature. Her painting of a lion’s head on a stake planted in a scorched landscape comes to mind.
