Joining 1xRUN for his debut RUN, 1xRUN are excited to welcome Victor Castillo with his painting Modern Love. The painting was shown at Victor Castillo's solo exhibition titled "The Jungle" at Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York last February.
"This is one of the few paintings that came to my mind in a dream, like a flash. Those days I was thinking a lot about conspiracy. This piece is about greed—it is everywhere, and it looks like there is a global conspiracy now. The piece is about how the insane obsession for money has created these lobbyists and groups of people who are conspiring to get more money and even more reach just to make the world a worse place. That is the feeling that I tried to create with this piece; that is the reason I have these two characters in the painting with these arms that are long and confusing, because you never know who the guy behind them is. You know? Who are the guys behind these hands taking the money?” —Victor Castillo
