Victor Castillo began drawing obsessively at the age of five, inspired by the animations he saw on television, science fiction movies, and the illustrations on record covers.

Castillo challenges the viewer to observe the world as it is instead of how it’s presented to us from above.

‘FOOLS!’ humorously imagines how the masses might be regarded by a powerful elite. Inspired by the monologue of an amorphous demon in a ’90s animation, Victor Castillo questions what agency we have inside hierarchical systems if we are trapped. This can be seen in the painting ‘El Loco’, or: The Fool. This piece is a reference to a tarot card character, which is sometimes portrayed walking along the border of an abyss, or shown upside-down, as they are able to see the world in a different way. This way of viewing and presenting a character, has taken influence from the novel Don Quixote, which presents the readers with alternative perspectives.
