Juan Arata is a Berlin based artist/scientist whose nihilistic paintings explore the contemporary consumer culture and installation.
Juan states that we are almost completely shaped by the brands we interact with. The characters in his paintings are miserable, trapped, branded and confused. The miserable, ugly subjects appear to be attempting to copy the lifestyle they have seen depicted in the media but fall short.
Juan frequently participates in 19 KAREN group shows and we were proud to host his debut Australian solo show in February 2013.
