About Juan’s Work
Juan’s work varies from bold and vibrant figurative Pop Art work to more monochromatic and abstract pieces. His work has evolved over the years, and the artist has illustrated an expert ability to maintain his flair work across multiple styles. Aliaga’s colourful figurative pieces are perhaps his most well known works, and have proved to be popular amongst collectors. These textured and vibrantly coloured canvases feature little handcrafted figures, typically depicted against a simple abstract background, or at play in landscapes. A deeper complexity lies beneath the surface of these eye-catching individuals, as they emerge from the canvas to offer themes of social symbolism and jovial youthfulness. Aliaga’s mid-sized works are often in the region of 50cm, and extend up to larger pieces that are a metre in width and height.
The materials for Juan’s figures are prepared using a special formula that the artist keeps under wraps. Each individual is lovingly hand-crafted by the artist, before being secured to the canvas. The artist 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.
Juan’s work is fun, fresh, and modern, making it perfectly suited to contemporary interiors. His crisp white canvases are complementary to similarly minimalist home interiors, allowing the bold figures to introduce a delicate and playful pop of colour to the interior. Equally, the colour combinations work as a statement piece amidst eclectic and colourful home interiors, including as part of a bold coloured feature wall. They are feature pieces by design, and are guaranteed to draw attention and intrigue to any space.
