Victor del Castillo
Born: 1968;Lima, Peru
Victor del Castillo was born in Lima, Peru, in 1968. At the age of three, a trip to El Callejon de Huaylas became his first source of inspiration. The rich and deep colors of the sky and landscape moved him to draw and paint a sketch. Despite his young age, the quality of the drawing was such that his parents were convinced he would become another Da Vinci.
At the age of 17, del Castillo joined the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes in Lima. After reviewing the different painting schools, Victor experiments and tries Impressionism, Fauvism, Abstraction and Informalism to end up at his graduation with realism.
His main subject, the still life, is given a special sense and sentiment by which the trivial elements become alive. It is as if every fruit he paints represents a state of the human soul.
Victor has participated in a long list of exhibitions and is being collected by serious and well-known art collectors.
