BLOODLINES: The Art and Life of Vincent Castiglia

A film by John Borowski


Bloodlines: The Art and Life of Vincent Castiglia is produced and directed by award-winning filmmaker John Borowski. The film focuses on artist VINCENT CASTIGLIA's inspirations and personal experiences. His work is singularly unique. For over a decade, he has painted exclusively in his own blood. Recently, there have been many requests for his highly specialized paintings to be created for his collectors using their blood, so he has begun working on select projects (chronicled in the film).

The film also examines Castiglia’s troubled past and his overcoming the odds to become a world-renowned, critically acclaimed artist. He’s had the distinction of receiving his first solo exhibition by personal invitation from the late master, H.R. Giger. The exhibition hung for six months in the Giger Museum Gallery in Switzerland. Featured in the film, for the first time ever, is the in-depth process by which Castiglia creates his artwork painted in human blood. Interviews with a wide range of collectors who own his work will also be featured.
