Artist of the moment………..Roberto Juarez

 

 

Roberto Juarez is an American painter renown for his abstract paintings which sometimes include botanical and floral imagery. Robert Juarez was born in Chicago, Illinois in the year 1952.

Juarez attended the San Francisco Art Institute earning a B.F.A. The artist went on to the M.F.A. program at the University of California at Los Angeles.

The artist enjoys having a solo exhibition of his work every two years.

Juarez reminds of the great Andy Warhol for his ability to take images we see daily in our culture, and mix them with items that he has drawn or painted himself.

In this clip we watch the artist at work on a very large piece:

Price range information: Works range from $3,000 to $24,000. The artist works in acrylics and mixed media.

The artist reminds me of painter Robert Kushner for his usage of botanical and floral imagery in mural sized works.
