Juan H. Espino captures a “Slice of life” in rural America with its present day charm. Born in Mexico, he received a Law Degree and practiced law for twenty years.
Always interested in art and fascinated with Pennsylvania countryside he painted what he liked most, his surrounding colorful society and architecture, in a primitive or folk art style. His art chronicles Main Avenue, Hawley, Pennsylvania, as it appears today.
JJ’s exquisite landscapes reveal not only the beauty but the emotion and sensation of the environment. A combination of neutral soothing tones, rich textures and discrete pops of color add interest and life to his images. Seeing the world in graphic shapes and layers, JJ creates images that are both serene and full of energy. Masterfully crafted, he unfolds the sense of place, inviting the viewer to experience the landscape by awakening the senses. JJ continues to find the beauty in nature and the world around him revealing the true breath within the landscape.
JJ lives on Long Island NY with his Wife, two dogs and has more guitar's than he should.
