Nico Ramon Kastner (born 20th December 2000) is a self-taught swiss artist, who discovered his passion for oil painting in his teens and is currently studying fine arts in Zurich.
The focus of his paintings lay on showing intimate moments of people in a moment of introspection and self-reflection. Lots of these aspects can also be found in the self-portraits which show an honest confrontation with himself, where he explores feelings of solitude and alienation. The rather dark palette of his oil paintings harmonizes with the mood and themes the paintings portray and often take reference to his idols of art history. The other spectrum of his work varies from figurative studies, portraits and references to his passion for music and film.
