  • September-November 2019 – “Impressions and Contrasts”. A dedicated exhibition at the Spanish Embassy in Belgium, Brussels, presenting 20 works. With this choice of works, the artist plays with the contrast among the urban and city landscapes photographed in a bucolic and impressionist approach, and a series of portraits, photographed in a more intimate light with vivid expressions, representing a very personal experience. https://www.spainculture.be/es/region/bruselas/impresiones-contrastes/

Ángel Castillo Perona was born in Madrid (1975) and moved to Brussels in 2006. Already with a good eye for photography, it was in this new city that he developed his strong passion for the art of photography, developing and perfecting techniques which combined his love of impressionist art and his skill in photography which does not rely on software manipulation. He finds inspiration in the beauty of natural elements in urban settings which is often over-looked and missed by city dwellers rushing past.  Strong, vibrant colours and lighting are common in his work but his techniques provide an intriguing perspective which blurs the line between photography and impressionist oil painting.  Angel’s portrait work is dramatic and captivating with the personal story of the subject visible to all.
