About the Artist
Juan Cotrino was born in Bogota, Colombia. He began painting at a very early age. At the age of eighteen, he became part of the Multi National Force Observes (ONU) in Mount Sinai. While in service for his country he became desperate without a brush or paint, to create and express his emotions. A can of shoe-polish and a piece of cardboard allowed him to Paint with his fingertips to let his feelings run free.Juan’s supervisors admired his skill and ask him if he could paint murals. He painted several murals, received special recognitions and his career began.
Juan has attended art schools, but is essentially self-taught.
He has been developing his unique style over the years and transforms passion into art by embracing life and the spirit reflecting his thoughts and feelings in a path of connection to life itself and nature. Every painting consists of precise lines and the pure use of colors seen in traditional Latin American art. These characteristics give each of Ramirez's paintings a strong compositional movement, varying from surrealism to figurative to even a touch of abstract. His use of Symbols in his paintings to represent our lives as dream-like experiences and his palette varies from Oils to Acrylic to Mix-media.
In Juan’s own Words, "I devote myself to life of painting, discipline, vision and determination to trace my path to success in the contemporary art world"
