James Castle

American , 1900 - 1977

James Castle is a self-taught artist. Debate remains over whether he was born deaf or possibly autistic. He never learned to read, write or communicate in any traditional manner; rather he expressed himself through his artwork. His images were made from rudimentary materials, such as stove soot, saliva, sticks and found paper. He produced art for most of his life.
