Hello! Thank you for visiting my Patreon page!

Who am i?

My name is Andres a.k.a Castel Astra. I am a 24 year old self-taught artist, i draw since i can remember and what i most love are Watercolors.

I make my art based on feelings and crazy thoughts about life and the universe, i consider myself as existencialist so this is a very common theme on my works. I believe in connecting people through art, i always prioritise adding sentiments to my paintings and letting my emotions flow hoping to achieve that connection, this is what i call Conceptual Aquarell.

I also make free-time doodle/sketches/studies about anything i feel like to.





Please, take a little time to read my current situation and understand why your support is truly important to me, thank you so much!


My current situation

I was born and live in Venezuela - South America, a very depreciated country economically and culturely, the minimun wage at the moment is only 15$-30$ month, (government raise it constantly but depreciates everyday) we got a lot of problems here but the biggest one for me is the need to work all day for a little amount of money.

My dream is to become a full-time artist and dedicate the rest of my life to my paintings and my fans!, as you can imagine, it has been impossible to acomplish my goal and improve in the place i am at the moment, art wont sell here and working all the day only to get enough money to eat is not an option for an Artist wishing to grow. Gladly i still got internet to share my content and Patreon! there's where you come to play a big role in my creative life and i to yours hopefully!

Why become my Patron?

I really leave my heart and soul on my Artwork, bringing emotions to people with the things i do is what makes me happy! Your support would let me know that you're truly enjoying my work :) 

I hope someday i can travel far from here, don't get me wrong, i love my country but here things are beyond fixable, dozens of murders everyday, long lines to get food, culture and society in decadence. I'm wishing to travel to Chile, one of the best countries in Latin America to live (not survive), to be safe and of course grow as an Artist. There of course the cost of living is higher. This dream is so big but you can help me get closer to it!

Pledging to be my Patreon would help me in my situation but also i will be able to persue a lot of personal projects, i've been wanting to share such as art series, make comissions, even an art book! to name a few.

More than that i believe Patreon is a great venue for me to reach out to the people who have supported my art and be able to personally show my appreciation in some way.

Where is your support going?

Art materials/tools;  for a watercolor artist it is very important to get good materials (high quality paper and paints are the most important) but i really can't afford them.

I've been struggling with so much frustration here, but i realized that having people loving what you do is already one dream come true, i have been receiving tons of comments about how much people enjoy my work, that really makes me happy and that's why i created this page.

Other things to take note of:

  • Your pledge will be charged to you at the end of every month
  • All rewards will be delivered every end of the month or within one week the month after

Thank you so much for reading!

With love, Castel Astra.
