Walter Castillo Art Studio

Although Walter Castillo was born in Nicaragua, his family fled an ongoing civil war to settle in Belize in 1981. As a curious and talented teenager, Walter Castillo traveled the length and breadth of Belize in order to learn about the many indigenous cultures in the country, living with Maya, East Indian, Creole, and Garifuna communities for four years.

This deep love of both the vivid nature in Belize as well as the various cultural influences inspired Walter Castillo to become a self-taught musician and artist. In 1990, in London, Walter Castillo had his first international exposition followed by other shows in the USA, Taiwan, Portugal, Italy, Germany and soon became internationally known for his vivid use of colors and broad expressionism.

Today, Walter Castillo is one of Belize’s most heralded artists, recognized for his vibrant colors and high-energy drumming. The Walter Castillo Art Studio is a great opportunity for visitors to browse many of Castillo’s finest creations, purchase prints and postcards, and potentially meet the artist himself.
