Victor Castillo

Victor Castillo is a Chilean painter currently residing in Los Angeles, California. 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 mixed media sculpture and video installations.

Victor moved to Barcelona, Spain in 2004, where he established his painting style with references to comics. After seeing the Prado Museum in Madrid, particularly Goya’s Black Paintings, he adopted aspects of classical painting in his work. Working with the legendary Igaupop Gallery until its closing in 2010, Victor began to show his work internationally.

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. His work has been exhibited in museums and galleries in Chile, Spain, the United States, Germany, France, England, Italy, Belgium, Denmark, China, Argentina, Brazil, and Columbia, as well as in numerous newspapers, magazines, and publications.

Victor has created large-scale indoor murals for the National Museum of Fine Arts (MNBA) in Santiago, Chile; the Museum of Modern Art in Chiloe; and the Center for Contemporary Culture Barcelona (CCCB), Spain among other installations.

Tim Lane

Tim Lane paints largely from his imagination; painting people especially without need of any reference. Animals and some other more specific elements, however are a sort of a ‘frankenstein-esque’ composition of various different visual references, but never directly copied.

The paintings are arrived at organically, like a story unfolding, always with this over-arching theme of death; evoking a dark sense of mystery and mood. He is interested always in convincingly capturing the emotional interactions between his characters, which make the images more emotive and affecting.

Erwin Polanc

Erwin Polanc is an austrian photographer who focuses on the rapidly diminishing mining community not far from his hometown Eisenert, which has decreased in population by over 10.000 in the last 60 years. Once a thriving source of work and livelihood, the mountains now ominously shadow over Eisenerz’s former prosperity. With the young leaving in droves and the retirement homes growing each day, Polanc examines those who have chosen to stay in this dying community. 8790 is about a town at a haunting standstill, the images recording the landscape and personal stories of survival one day at a time.

Never heard of rrrrrrrroll? Well, me neither until today. rrrrrrrroll is an anonymous art collective of at least three individual photographers who creat brief animated gifs of spinning objects and people but never publicly credited themselves.  Although the aesthetic is somewhat rigid, with desaturated colors and only isolated objects set in motion, each new animation remains just as intriguing week after week.

Lu Cong

Lu Cong was born in Shanghai, in 1978.  He immigrated to the United States in 1989 at the age of 11.  After graduating from the University of Iowa with degrees in Biology and Art in 2000, Lu chose to pursue portrait art over medicine.  His early works were large and sensational, though they were painted with exaggerated melodrama and pathos, his keen insight and sensitivity towards his subjects were nonetheless evident.  Between 2003 and 2007, Lu was recognized by a number of art publications as a notable emerging artist.  Since then, Lu has developed a distinctive look that many has regarded as an original approach to figurative realism.  His portraits do not simply capture the physical or emotional likeness of the subject, rather they beckon to establish an authentic engagement – interaction that ensues when one comes face to face with the sensual, the inexplicable, and the unsettling.
