Quilmes, Argentina (1982)
Is a symbolist and surreal artist, with an avant-garde concept but rooted in the nineteenth century´s aesthetic. His work stands out both for the vigor of its poetry as well as for its technique.
Dedicated to the fantastique, horror, suspense, essay and poetry, among his most important publishings you can find:
El Horror de Dunwich by H. P. Lovecraft; La Condesa Sangrienta by Alejandra Pizarnik and El Monje y la Hija del Verdugo by Ambrose Bierce (Libros del Zorro Rojo); Senhorita Christina by Mircea Eliade (Tordesilhas); Historias de Vampiros (Longseller); The Peacock Escritoire by Mark Valentine and Tarshishim by Ron Weighell (Ex Occidente Press);
Three Great Plays of Shakespeare and Don Quixote, (Penguin Readers).
Between 2005 and 2011, he published his art on the mythical magazine
CARAS Y CARETAS. He has also made covers for Tartarus Press,
Nightshade Books, Miskatonic River Press,White Wolf Publishing,
Random House Mondadori, Cántaro, Sudamericana, Emecé, Planeta and
Páginas de Espuma, among others. He creates the visual concept of music
albums of different bands from Perú, USA, Canada, Finland and Ireland.
In 2010 he has been chosen to be part of Beinart Surreal Art Collective
and he is an active member in their exhibitions. 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, Slovakia and Spain, is currently one of the most pleasant revelations of Latin American plastic arts.
