Johnny Castillo

Guatemala-born, Johnny Castillo is a contemporary realist whose work is significantly influenced by his experiences as an undocumented individual. By diving into psychological experiences and exploring his emotions, Castillo’s goal is for his art to be an experience in which others can find solace and pieces of themselves that they thought were forgotten.

Castillo is currently studying Drawing and Painting at The Long Beach School of Art's undergraduate program. He has also received an Associate’s Degree in Studio Arts from Santa Monica College. Castillo is currently managing/ teaching at Kline Academy of Fine Art.
