"This painting was created towards the end of 2012 in my studio in Los Angeles. It was created using acrylic on canvas. Sometimes the ideas come in like a flash, but at the same time I have a collection of images and different concepts that I'm always mixing to create new ideas. In this case, it was in a flash.
This painting is a little rebel story about facing the fantasies that make us blind face to reality. It was part of my February 2012 solo show in Los Angeles at Merry Karnowsky Gallery. Now, it will be a part of a group show this November at Jörg Heitsch Galerie in Munich, Germany." - 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.
