“Weapons of Mass Seduction”: The Superb Dark Humor Paintings of Victor Castillo
Victor Castillo is an international artist living and working in Los Angeles. He was born in Santiago, Chile in 1973, where he was part of an independent artist collective, and he lived in Barcelona, Spain, where he dedicated and established himself as a painter before moving to the United States in 2010.
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.
