Juan Torres was born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1968. Actively painting since 1997, Juan sees his work as a meditative process: “My inspiration comes from the things around and inside me. What I see, feel or do. It could come also from art pieces that I see in museums, galleries, on the street…Art is everywhere. It’s curious, but sometimes what inspires me to paint are the same things or feelings that I want to stay away from.”
Working in traditional mediums of oil, pen, and ink, Juan is informed by impressionism, classical, and neoclassical periods.
