Santiago Caruso (1982-) is an Argentinian sureal artist. Since 2001 he works professionally. Among his most important publishings you can find: "The Dunwich Horror" by H. P. Lovecraft; "The Bloody Countess" by Alejandra Pizarnik and "The Monk and the Hangman´s Daughter" by Ambrose Bierce; "The Peacock Escritoire" by Mark Valentine; "The Cherry Tree"; "Three Great Plays of Shakespeare" and "Don Quixote".
He has also made covers for Nightshade Books, Miskatonic River Press, Cántaro, Sudamericana, Planeta y Páginas de Espuma, among others. Nowadays, he publish his art on the mythical magazine CARAS Y CARETAS. Recently, he has been chosen to be part of Beinart International Surreal Art Collective, and he is and active member of their exhibitions. His work stands out both for its vigor as well as for its technique. It is no overstatement to say that the work of Caruso, which is well represented in the galleries and museums of Buenos Aires, USA, Mexico and Spain, is currently one of the most pleasant revelations of Latin American plastic arts.
