A pioneer in the Latino muralist movement of the mid 1960s, Mario Castillo turned to Minimalism in the late 60s and early 70s. During this period, he created unique works that not only explored minimalist issues concerning perception and art, but also universal human issues with a Latino-Mexican sensibility. In Mario Castillo: Minimalist Reassertions, Castillo reclaims, reprocesses, and transforms these works, asserting the notion that artistic issues from the past are valid in the present.
