Canyon Castator is an American painter. Growing up as a skateboarder in Colorado, Canyon moved to New York City at the age of 19. Appropriating the cities resources as a classroom, Canyon taught himself to paint . In 2014 he was invited as a guest student to study at the Kunst Akademie in Düsseldorf, Germany. Upon returning to the US, Canyon relocated to Los Angeles, where he currently lives and works. Canyon's paintings open a dialogue between analog and digital methodologies, with themes that explore and exaggerate everyday life in LA. When not in the studio canyon spends his time with his partner singer/songwriter Zarina Nares and his mistress the Pacific Ocean.
