Victor Castillo (Chile, 1973)
Since his fifth years of age he started to draw after what he saw on television, magazines and in cinemas. He attended art school which did not fill in his need and dreams, so after leaving he joined an independent experimental art group in his hometown of Santiago, and spent the time making video installations and mixed media sculpture works.
He is known for his eerie artworks inspired by animation, vintage comics and popular media. His works depict greed and corruption of the contemporary society.
In 2004 he lived in Barcelona (SP) where he first saw Francisco de Goya's Black Paintings in real which lead to his totally original signature style of paintings.
Victor Castillo was part of the Popland 2.0 Exhibition in 2021.
