Jorge Castillo
Born in 1936, Pontevedra

Spontaneously self-trained in Argentina.

There is a kind of reality that may be transformed into poetry. This is the case with Jorge Castillo, a realist painter that is likewise concerned with the world of dreams; sarcastic at times but nonetheless undoubtedly poetical. 

One might say that his work shows the effects of penetrating the realms of surrealism. Be that as it may, he is one of the few Spanish artists never to have believed in the claim that literature is a morbid abnormality, when applied to painting. He sees painting as a testimony of reality. 

And why should we niggled over whether the reality portrayed is poetical or literary? Castillo’s diction as a painter is highly graphic.
