Juan Axato

Visual artist Juan Axato( Juan Andrés Torres) was born in Seville, Spain, in 1974. Actually he lives in Lora del Río, near Seville, where he has got his studio and works. "Axato", is the pseudonym which is taken from the old roman name of the village where he lives since he was a child, Axati( Lora del Río). He studied Fine Arts at Seville University and he has got a lot of influences from informalism and abstract expressionism up to lyrical abstraction.

His paintings are a continuous and endless evolution trying to found the eternal symbiosis between the two contemporary tends: organic and geometric. Axato has exhibited his work in many individual and group exhibitions and it can be found at several private art collections and will paint, like he said, till the end of the world or till hell freezes.
