Chilling Works by Santiago CarusoIllustration // Monday, 08 Apr 2013
Santiago Caruso is an Argentinean artist born in Buenos Aires. Covering subjects of fear, passion, desolation and violence, it's surprising that Caruso is twenty-nine years old. Having a classic painting technique and creating illustrations that look like they've come out of an 1800's science illustration book, Caruso has style and skills beyond his years,"I came to illustration through the comic discipline, so the images I made always came from a story or situation I've imagined or read. I try to say something to you. With time I learned to let you be free to read my image as you want, with more aperture into the possible meanings and interpretations, closer to the classic art than the usual illustration way."
