Science, Art and Ancient Knowledge

One of Sastoque's most important artistic influence has been Mastro Armando Villegas. Villegas was a Peruvian-born, Colombian painter. His body of work belongs to the  artistic movement "Fantastic Realism." 

 

He once said that his studio in Bogota was "a laboratory of unrest that makes the imagination go wild." He has received notable distinctions for his contributions to Latin American culture. His works are exhibited in various solo exhibitions and in national as well as international museums such as that of Israel, Sweden, Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, Mexico, New York, Washington, The Art Institute of Chicago and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Lima, Peru.
