Juan Lopez-Bautista

There is a personal inner force and compulsion for me to paint, to doodle, to design shapes and use color as a way to free the energy and imagination within myself. My recent work is based on reflections as a visual consumer, scientist, traveler, Hispanic and observer of people around me.

I found influences in color and design from vintage scientific illustrations and other painters such as Diebenkorn, Scully, and Howard. By interpreting notions that cannot be revealed to the simple eye I challenge myself to create my own personal perceptions.
