Taller Castillo is a multidisciplinary space where techniques such as painting, ceramics, tattooing, illustration, and sculpture are explored. The workshop's dynamic is flexible, tailored to the needs of each artist's work. The goal is to open up the universe of the artwork, delve into the depth of techniques, expand the network of contacts, encourage the exchange of knowledge, and foster constructive debates related to the concept of the artwork.

The atelier is directed by Christian Riffel

Christian Riffel, born in Buenos Aires in 1982, is a visual artist and muralist whose work is influenced by his design studies and street art experiences in the late '90s. Around 2010, he returned to abstraction and geometry. From large-scale paintings in public spaces to iron sculptures and small-format paintings, his work can be analyzed as influenced by urban material and the intersection of abstract art tradition.

The disruptive composition, tension, and color are the subjects of study. Multiple ways of representing geometry are prevalent in his work. Riffel is interested in experimenting with different pictorial systems that generate intersections where he questions a new spatiality.
