VictorCastilloThe Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles will be opening a new exhibit from Victor Castillo this Saturday, February 1st. The Chilean painter began drawing obsessively at the age of five, inspired by the animations he saw on television, science fiction movies, and record covers. He moved to Barcelona, Spain in 2004, where he established his painting style with references to comics. Working with the legendary Igaupop Gallery until its closing in 2010, Victor began showing his work internationally. His latest body of work set to be displayed seems to be a departure from his usual vivid and colorful paintings, however, his signature style is still present. Consisting of 12 black-and-white paintings on paper as well as a large-scale mural installation, you can preview his artwork at The Merry Karnowsky Gallery from February 1st – March 1st, 2014.
