"The artist describes the title painting We Were All To Be Kings: a king eating alone … a table with a feast … all around animals watching; the animals are angry because they have realized that they are food for slaughter. In each of the large paintings, Castillo notes that the protagonists are stealing from each other. Evoking George Orwell’s Animal Farm, it is class war between rich and poor and a criticism of capitalism that Castillo’s vibrant and comic painting ultimately portrays," from the release about the exhibition.
