basically, you’re amazing.
Thanks!! Since I am your long standing admirer, I feel quite flattered.
I needa see more! Gimme more!
I just saw your stuff on giant robot. I like the color and amount of story involved. I’d like to invite you to an art show I’m putting together themed FORCE FIELDS. It’s a benefit to get malaria nets to peple in africa. If you’d like to submit your stuff, that’d be pretty cool!

Ako, I think your work is amazing. I first found you through Giant Robot’s video series and was reminded of how I also used to think dinosaur bodies were under the hills! Anyway, it’d be swell to see your work on the East Coast, but I’m plenty happy looking at images online. Thank you, Sean.
Thank you! I don’t know if you are close to Philadelphia, but I will be in a show at Space 1026 this fall.
when is the show? i write for a local newspaper.
that is where i live, philly! guess i’ll see you then. let me know if you need a photographer to document anything while you’re out here, or nearby. it would be my pleasure.
Hi, there; did you know Castuera is a village in southwestern Spain?
mmmh do you have ancestry from Spain? or Latin America?
Yes, all people with the last name Castuera originate from that village. The last of the Castueras left in the early 1600s. My people wound up in Mexico, where my father is from. I went there and they gave me free candy!
love your stuff especially the watercolors and dinosaur inspired art. would love to see more..
Keep up the good work ;^)
p.s. love Adventure Time
Your welcome, I grew up loving dinosaurs as a kid too, as well as playing with toy ones too (much like a lot of other 6 yr olds). And watercolor is one of my favorite paint mediums to work with as well.
I love your work. So playful and powerful. I met your sister in Hawaii and she told me about you. Do you have a site where one can purchase your work?
Thank you Susan! Please forgive the delay in my reply. I am preparing a new show and the work will be available on line sometime after the opening on September 28. Link to the exhibition: http://www.giantrobot.com/events/gr2-928-1016-reception-sept-28th-magic-bodies-ako-castuera/
Thank you very much!
Could you please get someone to make you a website and put out a newsletter about your shows? These ceramics are fantastic, I am a big MCM ceramic collector and your glazes are lovely, the forms refreshing. Just missed getting some of the better items in the GR show, but would love to know what is coming up! Thanks so much, Laura
Thank you! I’ll have a site up within the next month. As you can see, managing an online presence is not my strong suit. I’ve been using all my time to build new work, and I look forward to sharing it on a new site, although I hope you’ll be able to see it in person. I’ll be in an exhibition at the Oakland Museum of California Art this April. Details:http://www.museumca.org/exhibit/superawesome
