A prolific self-taught painter who adeptly fuses popular culture references with old master painting, Victor is connected with the low-brow and Pop Surrealism scene that has its roots in California in addition to the global New Contemporary Art and Urban Art movements.

Victor is known for telling stories in his paintings. As if it were a contemporary chronicle, his work often appropriates the narrative logic of illustrations for children’s stories, and the aesthetics of classic animations, to present us with humorous fables about human nature and the state of society.
