LAZARO JUAN: WALL DRAWINGS
Saturday, February 8th from 1-4pm Artist Talk at 2pm
Lazaro Juan was born in Manila, Philippines. He began his education by attending Colegio de San Juan de Letran in Manila before immigrating to the United States during his early teens.
He then attended a drawing workshop at the Fred P. Pomerantz Art Center in NYC. In doing so, continued his Fine Art education by earning a BFA in sculpture at William Paterson University in Wayne, New Jersey.
He works in complex narratives fusing religious symbolism, the biographical, and dark humor by creating installations through the juxtaposition of various mediums from painting and drawings.
Using these subjects in creating a representation of the psychological conflicts and the dizzying vertigo of Filipino-American identity, a sense of play emerges with words and imagery.
He currently resides in Brooklyn while pursuing his MFA in painting at Hunter College.
