Scott Belcastro is a surrealist painter who creates stunning pieces of art that are full of explosive movement and dark depth. Although each whimsical painting looks deceptively minimalist, his use of acrylic paint on wood is much more than simple brushstrokes. Scott Belcastro's subjects may remain blackened for all the world to see, but there is a colorful blast behind them that adds another dimension to each work.

Based in Los Angeles, Scott Belcastro is set to have a solo show titled Brighter Doom at the Iam8bit Gallery in his hometown. Opening later this month, it explores "the vivacity and chaos pulsating through all entities, whether natural or man-made, while simultaneously addressing the beautiful tragedy that is life," according to the gallery.
