Victor Castillo ‘Under Heavy Measures’ Exhibit Preview

We last featured the work of Victor Castillo last year when he was showing his The Jungle exhibit at Jonathan Levine.

The Los Angeles-based artist has a new show opening this Saturday at Merry Karnowsky Gallery titled Under Heavy Measures. The show will consist of new paintings on paper and canvas, sculptures, and sketches all created a deceptively innocent style. The title refers to his feeling that “the scales of power have become oppressive: inequality grows, the protests increase globally, and the brutality with which these demonstrations are repressed is also amplified” which fits into how his work generally deals with ideas of political turmoil, brutality, greed, and other evils.
