Juan Carlos Zeballos expone en USA.

Juan Carlos Zeballos Moscairo- Recent Paintings Shown at Ariana Gallery

Ariana Gallery presents:

An exhibition of paintings by Peruvian Artist Juan Carlos Zeballos Moscairo

Juan Carlos Zeballos Moscairo who still lives in Arequipa, Peru will be traveling to Michigan to exhibit his current body of work at Ariana Gallery in Royal Oak, MI. Zeballos has exhibited his work in the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo in Arequipa, Peru as well as Lima, Buenos Aires, Rio De Janeiro and Miami. He has been presented numerous awards internationally including the John Constable Award in 2002.

His abstract paintings are bold in color, contrasts, immediacy and full of movement. They seem to embody of sense of lyricism reminiscent of the painting of Jean-Michel Basquiat, but with a more vibrant palette you might expect from a Peruvian painter. His sincere approach to painting begins with staining the canvas, then defining weight, composition and balance with confident, energetic and gestural strokes of color culminating in a marvelous visual experience.

Juan Carlos describes himself as an abstract expressionist. His inspiration is born in his daily emotion. He is a harvester, a hunter of urban visual information. With his paintings he understands the balance between happiness and of the tensions we all face as human beings. He invites the spectator to live now, together and to elevate the spirit with our senses.

Juan Carlos has a connection in the Detroit metropolitan area. His name is Father Ben Morin, now living at the Colombiere Center, a retirement home for Jesuit Priest’s. In addition to serving as a missionary priest; Morin also served in WWII and was a POW in Japan for over 4 years. After the war, Morin’s missionary work was in Arequipa, Peru for over 30 years. While there he helped a woman by the name of Valentino Moscairo who had a young baby, Juan Carlos. He became close to Juan Carlos and his mother and helped them over the years. While Juan Carlos was growing up it became apparent that he had a talent for painting. With the help of his mother and Father Morin, Juan Carlos persuded an education in art. It has been Juan Carlos’ dream to be able to visit Father Morin who is now 87 years old. This dream has become a reality with the help of Ariana Gallery giving him an invitation to show his paintings and help him obtain a visa.

This exhibition runs March 7 – April 18 2008. There will be an Artist’s Opening Reception Friday March 7 from 6-10pm.
