Vibrantly sharp lines, the Francesco Lo Castro paintings feature dynamic shapes that seem to explode from the canvas. On a greyish blue background, the designs stand out with pops of neon colors, but tend to lose focus around the edges as though they were caught by a camera in action.

This play of sharp lines and vibrant colors contrasted with a dulled-down background and a dream-like haze around the edges gives Castro's paintings an effect that grabs the viewer's attention. In order to achieve this type of impact, the paintings were done using several different mediums including oil, acrylic, spray paint, silk screen, layered epoxy resin and even gold leaf.

The Francesco Lo Castro paintings are a lovely mixture of balance and harmony with chaos and disorder with enrapturing results.
