He was born in Santiago, Chile in 1973. He began drawing obsessively at the age of five, inspired by the animations he saw on television, science fiction movies, and the illustrations on his family’s record covers such as Pink Floyd’s “The Wall”. Following a disillusive experience with art school, Victor participated in an independent experimental art collective in Santiago, creating a mixed media sculpture and video installations.
Victor Castillo is currently represented by Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles and shows with Helium Cowboy in Hamburg, Germany and Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York City among other galleries worldwide.
