Artist’s Reception: Juan Carlos Bautista “Poetic Art”

February 16, 2013 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Poetic Art




Juan Carlos Bautista was born on June 24, 1978 in Tumbes – the City of the Eternal Summer – on the north coast of Peru at the border with Ecuador. From an early age, he was attuned to the beauty of the world, and felt a need to find ways of adding to it.

Though his primary medium is painting, he also writes poetry, and takes his inspiration from multi-disciplinary sources. Among the artists who have had the greatest influence on him are the novelist Gabriel Garcia-Marquez, Jorge Luis Borges, Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse. At the same time, he is fascinated by the cultures of antiquity, whether those of the ancient Greeks and Romans or those of his native South America.

Each of his paintings “speaks” to some aspect of his experience in the world. He is private in his faith, while believing that the greatest of gods are those of peace and of love, and he hopes that his works will contribute to the building up of a better world.
