Joe Castillo’s Background Story
Joe was born in a family of artists in Mexico. His mother taught painting, while his father ran a graphic design and display company. His artistic career kicked off at the tender age of five when he enrolled in his mother program.
Joe’s art is also influenced and guided by God, ever since he was 14 years old. That divine inspiration can be seen even today, throughout all his sand paintings.
After Joe’s father had passed away, in 1963, the Castillo family moved back to the US. Joe continued his education, got a Bachelor’s degree in Bible and concentrated on his career.
Joe Castillo used his natural talent combined with his love for writing and teaching to become a regular speaker at youth camps and churches. He also has run an advertising agency for over 20 years.
However, life has not been all that friendly with Joe. He lost his wife to breast cancer, a defining moment. He sold his advertising agency, went back to school and graduated from Asbury Seminary.
A Complete Artist with Inspiring Stories
Joe Castillo‘s sand art is more than just an image. It sends a clear message to the audience. It inspires love and kindness, it motivates individuals and touches their hearts.
Drawing in the sand on a light table with an overhead video camera projected on a large screen, he can create powerful, fluid illustrations for large audiences.
Joe’s presentations have amazed thousands of people so far, as seen on CBS, NBC, BBC, and TED. Joe has also been booked by over thirty Fortune 500 companies, Kings, presidents, and dignitaries, in more than 18 countries around the globe.

The judges, the crowd and the viewers at home were utterly mesmerized by the way Joe was ‘telling’ stories and creating art right on the spot.
However, for his final performance at America’s Got Talent, he changed things a bit. Instead of telling a story, he stepped right in the spotlight and drew the three judges, as you can see from the following video:
