This week’s featured art(ist) is Rossana Castellino.
Castellino is one of the proud Internet artists who still primarily uses pencils, pastels, and paper to create her work, as opposed to digital mediums.
The majority of her gallery revolves around fantasy, sci-fi and cyberpunk visual themes. Her steampunk work, in particular, is what drew me to her art. A beautiful elf is a dime a dozen in the Internet art world, but Castellino has an imaginative eye for steampunk characters and concepts.
Castellino draws women exclusively, which is interesting coming from a female artist. The classic medium style is appealing in a world where everything seems airbrushed to perfection. There’s an authentic sense about non-digital art that I admire.
