His style and technique are massively influenced by traditional graffiti culture, however in his old age his 'bombing' days are mostly behind him.

JUAN

JUAN

Abstraction has been the main performative character of graffiti evolution. Letters that evolve, create environments and go further than in a simple white canvas is what Juan2 does.

This Spanish graffiti artist possesses a very personal style. His pieces born from the original idea of graffiti, the letters, but transforming them into the main and unique character of his composition - always in a play between the wind and the waves, breaking to the coast of the wall.

Juan2 left his hometown, Alicante before his 20s - full of eagerness - focused on building a career in the art industry. Completed studies in Fine Arts, Graphic Design and Art Production, combining digital and manual drawing in the studio with painting on mural surfaces in the urban landscape. Since 2012, Juan2 is based in London where develops his career in photography post-production and continues - as a recreational pursuit - creating independent letters that dance all over the walls, canvases, paper supports, etc.

Juan2 has an own philosophy of life and how the art interacts with it. For him, art is tangible and intangible: it is something that can be created and touched, imagined, shared and overjoyed... but also, it is the way people live, understand and interpret life.

Close mentally your eyes, travel away from where your body is... imagine how the letters transform your time. Imagine how life is worth with them on it.

Art activities began as a graffiti writer in 1997. Developing a style based on knowledge gained as an urban artist and craft of his profession as a designer. Passion for both - street letters and typography evaluated to abstract geometric compositions. His walls can be seen around Poland, Taiwan, France, Germany, the United States and the United Kingdom.

About - I’m looking for vibration and rhythm, the play of line creating positive and negative space, searching for tonal balance through contrast and harmony. I believe abstraction it’s the closest form of visual art to the music world, as it has the ability to convey emotional or expressive feelings and ideas without reference to recognisable objective forms already existent in reality. I rely on my intuition while building the composition based on basic shapes. I like to keep it playful and treat the process as a form of meditation.

I started painting in Hackney Wick in 1997 when he went to a local squatter rave.

Being a local boy at heart he headed back and resumed his artwork in Hackney Wick. After creating a few pieces, he began to bring other artists into the area including Teach, Diet, Oker and Skore , by the mid 2000's his artwork and influence had become prevalent.

He paints a traditional style of graffiti rather than street art. This traditional style of graffiti art is his passion, and he loves seeing his name out there on it in the Wick. For him Hackney Wick continues to be great breeding ground for creativity, and for the Wick he remains one of the key influences that make it what it is today.
