Roberto Juarez Biography

Chicago, Illinois, 1952 -

American painter and printmaker, Roberto Juarez is a highly acclaimed artist who earned an important position in the art world since his first exhibition in 1977. His travels to Mexico, Rome, the Dominican Republic, and India have a definitive effect on his art. His works are inspired by visual sources across a multicultural spectrum which he then reinterprets in his unique way. Juarez gravitated toward the traditions of Hispanic and non-Western painting, decorative arts and crafts, including pre-Columbian motifs. An Asian formal esthetic, too, is evident in the division of many of his canvases into vertical sections like those in decorative screens.
