Joining us for his debut RUN we are excited to welcome Victor Castillo
with his painting Modern Love
. The painting was shown at Victor Castillo's solo exhibition titled "The Jungle" at Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York last February.
"This is one of the few paintings that came to my mind in a dream, like a flash. Those days I was thinking a lot about conspiracy." - Victor Castillo
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
was born in Santiago, Chile in 1973, an infamous year that marked the start of the military dictatorship in his country. He began drawing obsessively at the age of five, inspired by the animations he saw on television, science fiction movies, and the illustrations on record covers such as Pink Floyd’s “The Wall”.
Victor tells stories in his paintings. As if it were a contemporary chronicle, his work appropriates the narrative logic of illustrations for children’s stories, and the aesthetics of classic animations, to present us with allegories about cruelty, fear, rebellion, greed, indoctrination, violence, and other abuses of power that the artist sees being imposed worldwide. His colorful work has also been described as political poetry coming from the Latin American experience.
