The press release begins…

Award winning Filmmaker / Author John Borowski’s (H.H. Holmes: America’s First Serial Killer) fifith feature documentary film, Bloodlines: The Art and Life of Vincent Castiglia, will be released in North America on November 13th. The film focuses on artist Castiglia’s painful life of abuse, addiction, and recovery while also exploring the reasons why the world renowned artist paints exclusively in human blood.

Vincent Castiglia paints surreal images exclusively in human blood. He began doing so as form of self-healing following a troubled childhood and painful existence. From darkness, however, came light, and Castiglia’s story is one of inspiration and hope, providing proof that art can heal and serve to inspire others.

Yes you read that correctly he paints using human blood, usually his own, but on occasions the blood of his subject.

Sure he can be viewed as a little morbid in his fascination with death but the end result is a product that draws you in. The detail is amazing.

What I found fascinating was the journey from conception to end product. He likes to use models.

As it can take 4 months to complete a single work, Vincent relies on photographs.

And this is the end product.

Without doubt Bloodlines: The Art And Life Of Vincent Castiglia is well worth watching.
