Miguel Angel is an artist based in Santa Pola, Spain creating oil paintings focusing on the human figure.

Under the stage name Sotoko, the human figure is the prominent focus and theme throughout Castrillo´s art practice, providing him a venue to illustrate the most basic and primitive instincts of humans; Furthermore, his paintings capture primal characteristics that still accompany our society even as we evolve.

He self-describes his work as controversial and dynamic; An experience or a fleeting thought can be the basis for his creativity; More specifically, his practice finds inspiration from the Renaissance and the revival of Classical forms and styles. He embraces a naturalistic realism, yet illusionist painting techniques used in Renaissance artworks.

Aditionally, he is fond of Italian painter Sandro Boticelli´s work and portrayal of the nude. However, contemporary artists such as Scottish painter Peter Howson inform his practice as well.

His works have exhibited in both solo and group exhibitions in galleries in England, Portugal, Spain, Italy and the U.S.A.


As an artist, Miguel´s professional goal is to continue creating series of paintings incorporating new ideas using art as a communication tool and a profitable way of living.
