Through his piece "Ebb and Flow of Life," Anton del Castillo articulates that "it reminds us that we are all capable of swinging towards a better life – one of royalty, higher consciousness, and spirituality...We are destined for more than just earthly pleasures and pains, and only we hold the reigns of our own life’s swing." "Ebb and Flow of Life" (oil on gold leaf panel, 122 x 91.4 cm) will be on view at the exhibition [PURPLE]: no man is an island, highlighting male artists from Southeast Asia, organized by Singapore-based One East Asia.
