Jilli Darling

Berlin, Germany

A dreamscape of meandering lines or play of colours and shapes demanding both depth and child-like indifference

JILLI DARLING aka Jill Castillo was born in Quezon City, Philippines.

She has established her home and work in Berlin, but left traces of former lives in the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Toronto, Dublin, and London.

From paintings on canvas, musings on paper, to large-scale murals, Jilli Darling brings a wide array of experience as an artist who has worked on commissions for the office and for the home. Jilli Darling draws her natural talent from an early training at a semi-private art school during her middle school studies. She then proceeded to acquire a bachelor's degree in graphic design and has worked within design agencies and tech start-up companies from Toronto and across Europe. As a self-taught visual artist, she plans to forever more explore her own style as deep expressions of identity and emotions.

In her own words:
"My art is a journey within the Self; modes within my conscious stream of being, the internal scape externalised as visual abstractions representative of a dichotomy within; the bright and colourful extrovert and the meditative introvert."

Informed by a longing for balance, a mediation of textures and colours shifting between a dynamic boldness, to calm and quiet dispositions.

Through shifts of perspective, colours are pitted against each other to achieve harmony. Markings are meditations of thought, of memory, of daydreaming. With a childlike curiosity, a bright and playful energy manifests into large formats. Working primarily with acrylic and oils, the artist jumps between landscapes within herself, evolving, regressing, exploring.
