Juan Sacristán

My studies as an artist have been within the graphic arts. However, I have explored painting (mostly acrylic), collage, and sculpture for several years.

Influenced by my graphic language where I generally use the blackness of the ink and the whiteness of paper, my painting has a chromatically limited palette. I use the multiple tonalities of black and white, with a touch of warm colors. My aesthetics are reflected as an abstract expressionism, gestural, with straight, geometrical strokes that break rigid and vertical structures. I explore everyday life situations through emotions and those that, in a determining moment, disrupt our lives as social groups. In the same way, my emotions and feelings are embodied in my artwork with a strong and intimate relationship with music and poetry.

I have participated in numerous individual and collective exhibitions with graphic art, painting, sculptures, and artist's books in Mexico as well as abroad and my artwork forms part of diverse private and public collections.
