You will also have the opportunity to view the works of and meet our featured artist for the month of August – Italo Castro.
 
Italo Castro is a fine artist, actor, designer and comic artist from the Amazon in Brazil. In 2007, he received his BA in graphic design, but he has been drawing and has been interested in arts since he was seven years old. In 2015, he felt the necessity to find one more way to express his thoughts and feelings through art, so after studying the old masters such as Caravaggio and Rembrandt, he put his first brush to canvas and found a new platform for his creative expression.
