Santiago Caruso is a dark symbolist artist with an attraction to the surreal and macabre. Born in 1982, in Quilmes, Argentina Caruso's avant-garde concepts are rooted in decadentism and dark symbolism. Caruso's techniques range from tempera and ink on paper to scratched mixed media pieces on cardboard. Working on book illustrations and music albums Caruso's art often has a highly narrative approach that makes viewing it an almost investigative process.
