Castrillo blazed trails as a sculptor and was considered ahead of his time during the sixties and seventies when his art practice was gaining ground. His technical proficiency has allowed him to bring his inimitable visions to life.
Playing with abstracted figurations in a three-dimensional medium, Castrillo has made use of depth and its relationship with form to create his living, figurative-expressionist works.
In this work he entitled Flight we can see his genius in play—drawing the viewers in to examine the figurative nature of his abstraction from up close.
