Juan Aliaga was born in 1964 in southern Spain, and is the son of the renowned artist Osvaldo Casabuena. Therefore Juan Aliaga has painted and been immersed in the art world from a young age. He has been educated extensively in the arts across the world.
Aliaga’s work varies from bold and vibrant pop art figurative work to more monochromatic and abstract pieces.
Aliaga’s colourful figurative work is perhaps his most well known, and even the untrained eye can see that there is something more complex going on below the surface of these seemingly simple figures.
Juan Aliaga cleverly works with perspective, and plays into the innovative three-dimensionality of his figurines. He constructs a shadow beneath each person with a careful handling of graphite, tricking the eye into his illusion of depth within the canvas.
Aliaga’s unique, quirky and colourful paintings bring a joyful vibrancy to their surroundings creating an intriguing focal point in any space.
Juan’s work is the perfect addition for any collector seeking a truly uplifting statement artwork to add to their collection.
