Juan Castillo: Soy Animal

Soy Animal
Juan Castillo (AR)
Museo Arte Municipal Moderno, Mendoza, Argentina
Drawings, paintings and installations of people having animal heads

Juan Castillo is making wonderful portraits of people, but he changes their heads to animal heads. At first the effect is humoristic, but it also gets me thinking. What if this animal appearance is a reflection of the person's personality? What animal head would I put on portraits of people I know? Or on a self portrait?
