Chalton gallery is delighted to present the first exhibition in the UK of mexican artist Marcos Castro. The artist presents images and elements alluding the iconographic identity of Mexico and the destruction and renaissance of this.


Castro presents oneiric scenes on atemporal moments where symbols die and return as phantasmagoric entities. The exhibition surged as a personal necessity to reflect and transmute the current political and social situation taking place in Mexico right now, the symbol of the death and sacrfice which give way yo a new identity.

The exhibiton includes drawings watercolours, ink on paper and  a new installation.
