World-renowned surrealist Vincent Castiglia is now offering uniquely hand painted Giclée prints - each one signed, numbered and painted in blood!
World renowned surrealist Vincent Castiglia is pleased to announce that he is offering new, hand painted / embellished Giclée prints for the first time ever. Each print is uniquely signed and numbered – and of course, painted with Vincent’s own blood (ed: and people complained at Bloodstock for Watain supposedly using their own blood!).

This is a rare opportunity for any collector who might be interested in a piece embellished by Vincent Castiglia at a more affordable price.

“With such precise technique, his depiction of human musculature is nothing short of outstanding.”
– Paul Booth / World-renowned Tattooist, Artist, Gallery Owner, Fanatical Nihilist
“If the body is the temple, then the heart is the altar and the blood is the sacred flame that enlightens the shrine. Vincent is painting with holy light.” – Martin Eric Ain / Musician, Celtic Frost
“The ominous truth that his art confronts, along with the exquisiteness in which it is portrayed, provides a timeless revelation into human existence.” – Joe Sopkowics, Forensic Photographer
Vincent Castiglia’s impressive work has seen many sides of the entertainment world, as well. MTV New Media's Horror-Slasher Film, Savage County, featured his art as its official movie poster, depicting the three murderers in the film.

Triptykon is founded by former Hellhammer / Celtic Frost singer and guitarist Tom Gabriel Fischer.
