J. D. Castro (1908-1994)

Jose D. Castro was born 1908 in Carmen, Zaragoza, Nueva Ecija,  Philippines.  He began sketching at the age of ten.  In 1927 Castro moved to Baliwag, Bulacan and set up a small sign shop.  About the same time he became a partner with sculptor Roman Carreon.  Soon he met the well known Philippine artist Fabian de la Rosa who brought Castro to Manila for formal art studies.  In 1933 he placed second for a still life painting at the United Philippine Annual.  Upon completing his studies he worked with the Philippine Film and Stage show of Rogelio de la Rosa.  For many years he worked on commission doing still life paintings of flowers for the Philippine National Bookstore.  In 1968 J. D. Castro received the "Most Outstanding Still-life Painter" award at the Luneta Summer Art Exhibit.  He has had solo shows at the Manila Hotel, St. Augustine College, and Kawilihan Art Gallery.  Castro died in 1994.
