Joachim Castañeda is an American multi-disciplinary artist based in Los Angeles. Studying fine art at San Francisco State University, he continued his study at Metafora E’scola di Arte Contemporani in Barcelona, Spain. Since returning to his native California his work has centered around the idea of perception and how it has broken the connection between fact and truth. Resiliency is a big theme in the artist’s work, by showing wear and tear Castañeda pushes a discourse of a history unknown, where the viewers’ perspectives are brought in to participate. It is by way of his art background from figure painting, mural making, and graphic design, Castañeda’s works are on an ever-changing plane arriving just at the edge of empathy.
