Juan Baron


Juan Camilo Barón, painter and draftsman, born in Bogota, Colombia in 1988, he began his  studies in 2007 in a visual arts program at Javeriana University, in Bogota, Colombia, by the year 2011 he won the full time scholarship in Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art, in Los Angeles, California. Juan had exhibited his work in the US and in Colombia, in 2016 he won the Bernardo Paramo award in Colombia. Juan captures moments of everyday life with a figurative approach. During the process of the artworks he finds associations with the history of painting and mysticism, generating images that reflect the internal and external reality that governs the daily life of the human being. 

“In the habitual of the everyday, the great purposes of life can be achieved, and more than all, the meaning of one’s own existence. Through family, work, social and environmental relationships there is a truth that is found in the simplest things of every day, which leads to the deepest part of being, where spirit and matter transcend and in some cases these symbols and concepts escape our perception, due to their apparent habituality. “
