MORE ABOUT JUAN

In his “Natural” series, Juan Carlos Navarro aims to portray the complexity of being and the force of the act of living in each branch, leaf and figure he paints. Each painting is a powerful metaphor in which figurative, spiritual, ecological and mystical currents are intertwined. His hope is that each character emanates an inner light and are at peace with themselves.
