Santiago de Chile, 1973.
Born in Santiago de Chile in 1973, the same year that the military dictatorship was established in his country, Victor Castillo began to draw obsessively at the age of five, inspired by the animations he saw on television, science fiction movies and illustrations on album covers such as The Wall by Pink Floyd.
He studied at the University of Art and Social Sciences (ARCIS) and the Catholic University of Chile, from which he was expelled, to later join an independent experimental art collective in Santiago. In 2004, he moved to Barcelona, Spain, where he devoted himself to painting and established a particular style, with references to comics, graffiti and old master paintings, particularly by Goya. In 2010 he moved to Los Angeles, California, where he currently resides.
